The sorrow over lost ones remains. Sometimes Zarah thinks of them, when she sees the ruins of a destroyed house or looks at old photographs. Then she tries to understand how, within 12 seconds, a whole world can change, when the earth moves.

Zarah has found her own way to deal with the pain. She has already compiled a whole volume of poems. "Life is beautiful for those who seek beauty," she says.
