Dear Deeply Readers,

For a slice of what constitutes “normal” life in Syria, we had a conversation with a 27-year- old woman, Delivering Aid in the Crossfire.

“It is funny how people are adapting,” he said. “The power comes on every three days for two hours and no matter what time it is you rush to charge your phone and cook. Even if the water comes on at 4am they rush to take a shower, do the laundry and clean the house.”

More starkly, he described that “Now we have a new kind of war – a relief war. The government doesn’t allow assistance to enter opposition areas and vice versa.”

That fuels desperation, amid the fighting,

“We are dying and we don’t care who takes control. I’m sure if you made a survey today and take out the extremists on both sides, then 80 percent [of civilians] would just want the war to stop. They don’t want freedom or Bashar or anything [in particular] — they just want the killing to stop. It’s not important who controls the country if no one is left alive.”
