My name is Faiso Mahumuud Awid and I want to talk with my country. My country has no PEACE. There are many people losing their life. Some of them are killing themselves, others are taking guns to make themselves start boys. The day I was born up to now my motherland has had no PEACE and also flag. All Somali people were killed so there I am very sorry about it may God give us a well known PEACE and prosperity say AMIN AMIN AMIN!
Flag where are you whenever I see or I read some books such as Kiswahil I see some people who were singeing their flag I feel sorry about it because I have no PEACE.
