Want to know what it feels like to lose everything and everyone you've ever loved or cared about? I hope your answer is no.

Well, I know what it feels like. It feels like part of you has been burned or torn to pieces. It feels like you have to anything and everything in your power to avenge their deaths.

Sometimes it makes you return to the place where the disaster took place. It makes you return to the jaws of the enemy.

What they did to my family was cruel! They made my family inhuman. They killed children. They killed innocent people!

And didn't care.

They would do it again if they were given the chance.

If they knew that I had returned, they would already be banging on the doors. They would be getting ready to burn the house down again.

It would be General Sherman's raids all over.

The broken pieces will never be fully mended. However, I can and I will do my best to stop this. I can at least help save my family for future generations.

I can at least help heal.
