Anderson Cooper’s Channel One Days

Sarajevo, 1993 - I hung blackout curtains so that snipers couldn’t see into my room. Slept on the floor so if a morder exploded my matress might protect me. I try to be careful, tried not to expose myself to snipers. I wasn’t able to understand it until I spend time in a dark room listening to shells land on nearby buildings, wondering if I was next. I found myself hating the bombers, wishing I could escape. I found myself crying with fear, cause there is nothing else I could do.
