Limar al-Taani, 3 years, was killed with her family Saturday Nov. 21, 2015, in Daraa, Syria, by the Russian jets' bombing of their house. Limar from somewhere between earth and heaven wrote the following message to us all, the so-called humans:
My name is Limar, I'm from Daraa, Syria. I loved life and I loved playing with my sisters and brothers. I loved my mom very much; I promised her to be a doctor when I grow up, but Russians made me break my promise. Strange planes flew over in the sky of my town and fired rockets. The sound was horrible. 
They killed me, with many of my family. I could see my sisters bleeding before I closed my eyes for the last time. My mother used to tell me that when people close their eyes for the last time, this means that they are dead. I didn’t want to die but my mother also told me that little children become angels when they die. 
I still have many things to do. I have a new teddy bear that I still want to hug when I go to bed. I wanted to listen to more stories by my grandma. My father has just bought me a new dress, a blue one with red stripes. I loved it very much. 
But I am dead now. I was killed. Many children like me got killed. I watched them on TV. I always felt sad for them. I am one of them now. We will play together. We will play hide and seek or go to the park to race and sing songs. However, pass my greetings to the Russian children. My mom always said that I looked like them because of my white complexion and blue eyes, but I am Syrian. I love my country as much as I love my parents and grandma. I wanted to live in peace. I couldn’t. Please try to make peace come back again to my country, so no more children like me die.
