      Rahwa,
      After learning how to kill in sawa, after being treated like animal and going through incredible suffering and horror, many Eritrean men and women are traumatized and depressed. But because of lack of information they do not know where to who to turn to. They go to extreme emotions and even madness by very simple things! Nowadays Eritrean have become very secretive and do not share their problems or go to a specialist. They just keep it in side and till it burns them and explodes on others as well. The Eritrean communities have to get together and try to see if some of us need help. help is available in this country. We know about this poor lady only because she died but there are many Eritrean women who live in hell with wife beaters but they do not talk about it. Many beat even their kids. It is sad really.
