My father is in jail since more than 7-1/2 months. I miss him so very much! I don’t want to lose hope because he can’t be with us, but sometimes it is very difficult. Now, during Ramadan, it is very painful that he can’t be with us. I feel like I can’t wait for him to be here with us and get out of jail. To give strength to my hurting heart, I looked at old pictures from him.
In 2008, my father has been jailed already once. I look at the pictures of the time, when he came home from jail. It hurts in my heart to see him only in pictures. But at the same time it gives me hope, that he will come out of jail soon and be with us. I would like to share some photos of him from that time with you:
When my father came out of jail, the pain of everything he had to suffer was still very fresh and made him cry. Also, he found out, that the Israeli occupation refused his work permit. He was so worried that he would not be able to feed the family without any income.
My father was so happy to meet Hassan Mousa after his release. He is a very close friend of my father. Right now, he is in jail, the same as my father: for 20 months and 15 days. We are trying to raise the money to pay the fine for him, too. So that he can go back to his family earlier.
My grandmother (the mother of my mother) is so happy when my father was finally back from jail. He too, hold her tight, celebrating his return.
So many friends came to celebrate when my father came out of jail… I hope we can celebrate his return very soon, again…
