Meet Maimon, a mother and a war survivor. Hear her accounts of her experience during the Fall of Camp Abu Bakr on year 2000. “Nandoon ako mismo nung nangyari ang Giyera sa Camp Abu bakr.Kitang kita ng dalawang mata ko yung mga bata,matatanda na tinatamaan ng bomba.Kasi ako that time,hindi ako takot kasi curious ako.Kasi before noon hindi pa ako nakakita ng totoong giyera.Kinukwento lang sya at nakikita ko lang sa sine. Pero nung unang putok sa Sapad kung saan isa sa mga unang namatay ay yung isang bata ng kapit-bahay namin na hindi humihiwalay sa akin,dun na nag-sink in sa akin na totoong giyera na to.Ito na ang giyera!Pinasakay ko sa truck yung tatlong mga anak ko,kailangan nilang tumakas.Pero ako bilang sympathizer ng MILF at dahil sa resposibilidad ko sa asawa ko at mga paniniwala ako,kailangan kong magpa-iwan.Nasa clinic ako,tumutugon sa mga sugatan.Mapait ang nakita ko,masyadong brutal ang giyera.At di eto dapat maulit.”
