Yemeni Woman: Are We Afraid Drones Might Kill Us?

Yemeni_woman_farmer

People wonder if we’re afraid we might die from these drones circling over our heads, but you know what, I am not afraid of death anymore. I’ve become familiar with it. Drones in our skies or government clashes are as common as rain or sunshine. Death becomes a daily fact. So no, it’s not that I lost my fear of death, I just became familiar with it. What surprises me and my family is life itself. Every morning we wake up to find ourselves alive. You walk in the middle. Between life and death.

–Oum saad, a farmer from Sanhan village, Yemen.
