DescriptionWhat the person describes to us is the beginning of the war when the soldiers were still there. There was cow theft, so the people organized themselves. "Why do they rob our cows? Out of pure lawfulness we will take care of them and we will find the thief." They watched. "If the soldiers stole them and consumed them," the people said, "let's take the soldiers out because they are the cause of the robbery in our town." That's why the war started. Then our neighbors fled into the mountain and they designated them as guerrillas, and others went to patrol on the behalf of the soldiers. My parents separated because of the war. The soldiers raped women, stole many belongings from people, burned cornfields. The soldiers destroyed many things, many people’s mothers and fathers died, but little by little the war ended, and the peace agreements came into force and they signed them.
