“We come here to make a good life, or a good future. Because in Afghanistan, everyday blasting, no one knows when he or they or she will die. Any minute, any second, we might die, we never know which day will be our last. We know we could die in borders, or crossing the sea from Turkey to Greece. We said: ‘No problem. Germany or die.’ Finally, we arrived. Here, you can walk the streets safely. Boy or girl. We can be happy. Here, people respect each other. We like this life. Life is not just: do your job, life means: give respect, take respect. Here, they know the humanity.”October 2015
