Congratulations, that is GREAT. I am happy that you when you look back at some of the things you wrote, you are happy with them. That is a sign of quality. Your writing has a lot it. Often when one looks back on what one wrote, we are not happy with our prose. And yes, it might not be as powerful as sending a missile. But with time, I have found that one of the few things that lasts over the years is art, when it is of quality. So yes your writing will have an impact.

Your writing is powerful. Your translations are important too. I hope you get permission to share the translations you shared with us in your book. It’s important the world knows what it’s like to live in a war zone, about the lives lost and destruction of property.

Enjoy the time with your family and friends. Rest well and write lots-- a time to consolidate and revitalize. Take care.
