A week ago around this time I was sitting barefoot and crosslegged in a sparse tent at the edge of Mafraq, Jordan, 20 kilometers south of the syrian border. Across from me, dressed in a black garment, Fatima, Syrian of Sunni Decent. Beside her, four kids in colorful sweaters. Calm and with a low voice the 38 year old tells me her story.
