Selma: Experienced as a Child, Remembered as an Adult

At around 1 a.m., less than two hours after our arrival, homemade fire bombs hit three different sides of our house. Exploding flames blocked all exits except one. There were 11 of us inside, and nine were asleep. Thank God we all made it out safely. Our home burned to the ground.
