Let’s hope nothing happens , God willing, that He allows us to live… Where are we going We don’t have a home, We don’t have land, Where are we going? We are in God’s hands… We are now Don’t be afraid, not anymore, we get used to it if it buzzes or howls what are we going to do…”, said Mrs. Mari López.
