“Yes, Mama. I must fight for our country and our people.”
“All right. I will be here when you come back.”
“I promise I will be back, Mama. Have faith.”

“I’m happy that he’s not here to see what is happening to our country.”
“If he were alive, he’d join the fight too.”
“Yes, he would have. I must go now, Mama.”
They hugged. “Boh z toboyu,” Mama whispered.
Grabbing her things, Polina left the cabin.
