".... I remember, we had a storytime and my aunt, who was a teenager at that time, would read a story for all of us each day. We had a big hall and we would all sit in a circle and listen to the story quietly that aunt would read for us..." (thread continues)

"...Sometimes, I hear the same stories here and I usually encounter an emotional moment and realize the fact that life is truly unpredictable because the first time I heard this story was in Afghanistan, in my home, sitting in a circle with all my cousins."
