Why hadn't they given me their photo before they left? During those long months I desperately wanted a picture. It would have been so wonderful to look at them in the cold mornings; on my way to school, just before coming to dangerous crossings… and every time I felt hungry or miserable or lonely. I would have covered that picture with my kisses and my tears. It would have been the most precious thing – the only precious thing that I owned.
