    Re: Appendicitis, part three

    Tarheel,
    I had a very good school education. Our teachers liked their job, and they were appreciated in society, which today is unfortunately not the case. I had more respect for my teachers than for my father. And I am curious by nature. I always like to scratch the surface and see what is behind it. If I hear the news in the media, I try to find more information to understand what is really going on. But the majority of people do not want to bother or do not have enough time to try to find the truth.

    Re: Appendicitis, part three

    Second paragraph. Did the artillery fire end at nightfall (sunset)?

    Perhaps;

    Just beyond the hills, people were killing each other and destroying what they had worked for decades to build.

    Tarheel,
    The artillery fired only during the daytime. It would start early in the morning and end late in the afternoon.

    Re: Appendicitis, part three

    OK. Perhaps:

    The constant barrage of artillery fire would go on from early in the morning until late in the afternoon.

    Re: Appendicitis, part three

    Was that national flag the Serbian national flag? (It's probably a detail worth mentioning.)

    Say:

    Their pictures would appear on death certificates stuck on walls and lampposts. But their deaths did not dissuade others from leaving their families behind to go to war.

    Paragraph three. I suggest:

    Would they manage to keep their jobs, or would they lose them only because of their nationality?

    Re: Appendicitis, part three

    Paragraph four.

    War was on everyone's mind -- even the patients suffering from serious illnesses and injuries.

    Paragraph five.

    Ahmed and I discussed the the war and the possibility that soon we would see bombs and shells flying over our heads.
