[quote=msijla]Hello Mr. Ali,
How are you? How is life in America? I really miss you, hope you are fine and hope that everything is okay.
On Monday, November 7, Ala’, Sa’ed, and I visited your family. We sat with your dad, your brother Rabee’, Abu Rashad and others. It was a very nice visit. We had dinner together. We all miss you a great deal.
Our circumstances in the Gaza Strip are still very bad, and the people here suffer a lot because of it.
Please take care of yourself and study hard.
