Life is unpredictable for everyone. I started believing in this phrase when a life-changing incident happened in my life. It was Sunday when I was trying to prepare for a quiz and heard the first gunshots of my life. It sounded in such a way that I wish nobody in the world should ever hear, but due to the pressure of my studies, I tried very hard to concentrate on my studies. It was the last quiz which I had prepared.

Russian troops bombed my school in Kharkiv, and there was a hole in our classes due to a bomb blast. This incident changed my life, and I was locked in my house; there was an environment of threat everywhere. It seemed like death would either snatch my closed ones or me. Our routines, our fun activities, everything just got escaped. It looks like life before the war was a dream. These were days when we didn't have to hold pens and pencils and didn't have the anxiety of being called up to the board to solve math exercises. Russian Invasion snatches our rights to primary education and learning.

Children like me, like the children around the world, go into hiding places, into refugee camps. The children who had to run the country's future were killed and traumatized. They were those with whom the end of their lands and the world belonged. If we are lucky enough to have survived or escaped this nerve-breaking war, the recovery period from this trauma would be very long because we have lost peace and everything from our life. Children rescued from the war faced many consequences even though they had to survive for basic needs like food and shelter. So it prolonged our lives.

News had been circulating on TV that Russia had started shelling our country. It was heart-wrenching news; there had been hundreds of deaths. There had been a shortage of food, medicines and other essential items. And there was an emergency everywhere. Ambulances were wandering here and there. Mothers were waiting for their beloved children, and Wives were waiting for their husbands. All news channels were covering the devastating effects of war. It was a situation that seemed like the world is going to an end. People were running and crying, and the noises of that bombing and shelling were heartbreaking.

Furthermore, in the circumstances, a couple was newly married like all the couples worldwide and dreamed about their life. They had many imaginations, like how they would spend their life. It was the day of 24 Feb 2022 in Luhansk Oblast when Larysa was waiting for her husband in her apartment. Her husband left her in the morning because he had to do something meaningful in the office.

She was waiting for her husband when she heard the noises of shelling, and everything was on fire. It seemed like the world was ending; it was a resurrection scene for her. She turned on the TV to see what had happened. After Turing on TV, the remote control had fallen from her hands. She fell to the floor due to the news of a destroyed building due to a military operation. Yes, it was the same building where her beloved husband left her in the morning.

She became unconscious and had a nervous breakdown. After seeing the news, she was clear why her husband had not called her for so many hours. Why he had not sent her messages, he was missing her. Why was his phone turned off? Her life without him was nothing but an end. Her dreams of a future life would not go to pursue anymore.
