He belongs to city of Homs, Syria and was displaced because of the regime and daily killings and shelling in his area. He said he doesn’t want anything but a safe place to live. He also aspires to learn more and complete his academic career, which he was deprived of when he was in Syria. He has participated in this protest because he got approval from local German police. He said his and his brother’s sincere prayers are for Germany which gave them safe heaven to live. He is thankful to German government to help them but he also wants them to show empathy. He saw some demonstrations against refugees that he thinks is wrong.

He is a peaceful person he believes and would do nothing to disrupt the lives of other people in Germany. He wants international community to give attention to this issue and to aid refugees. He wants them to help the people who are victims of war is Syria and are getting killed every now and then. And these talks should not be limited to just talk, actions must be taken immediately to stop the war and solve issues mutually.

Furthermore, he shows his gratitude and determination by saying that he wants to be an active and productive member of German society and sometimes he misses his life in Syria. His dream is to live in a safe place where he can learn and study. That place he believes is Germany because it is the only country that accepted him after all the other countries abandoned him.
