    My mom was in april 1988 visiting her grandmother in hargeisa, and my mother told me (and even sweared because i didnt believe her) that she was present at the massacre in hargeisa.
    She told me she witnessed majority of her friends, and family getting killed, and even saw a man getting shot from the window of her house late at night. She also told that the army would lock up everyone in hargeisa 2pm till the morning, soldiers would loot peoples properties, and she constantly hear screams until late at night.
    Some part of me still didnt believe her, but got it confirmed when my grandfather said it was true, i just thank god she survived.

    One of my favorite uncles went missing in early 2007 after he participated the war against Ethiopia. Nobody knows if he's dead or not.

    TBH somalis dont talk about any wars like how other groups keep talking about events and stuff that happened idk its our culture I guess. I had relative from dad side die in 77 war but that's only because I asked how many siblings my granddad had and he mentioned he had a younger brother that I never heard of before.
    I don't even know what happened in the civil war since my parents never speak on it but they left young and early when it started anyway my grandparents stayed then and now since they keep on saying if I die here I die here etc. But I feel like it'll be awkward if I asked them about the civil war.

    Lol one deep secret I just realised was that apparently my family disowned my grandmothers sister who went off with a guy who was arab and Italian. They just disowned her and still to this day not like her tbh I agree with them aswell and even though she apparently tried to find them and reunite they said no and I don't personally really want to meet her mixed kids or grandkids either.

    Why would it be interesting I don't think I'd feel close with them.
    They can't be either cadaan or somali now since they have other mixes in them. Her kids are obviously a quarter arab quarter Italian and half somali but their younger pics shows they don't look somali which is a bummer.
    Her grandkids that married did marry somalis but that doenst change anything for now I don't want to associate with them which may seem weird but I don't feel the urge to want to

    No her kids don't look somali but the grandkids look like very fair somalis so they have our features but have north African lighter skin. A shame really even after 2 generations
