A Palestinian young man who was married to the love of his life only one month ago and who fought for 10 years until their families approved their wedding stood at the side of his demolished house and told the TV reporter that he spent 5 years building a tiny house (one bedroom, a bathroom, a small kitchen) and he haven’t paid back half of the construction costs just yet. Worst of all, he says he couldn’t save anything from the house. Not their wedding pictures, not wedding video, not their first love letters, not their humble presents they used to exchange. Nothing. That broke my heart. At least they still have each other
