it is never easy to leave the old, even the bad old, for an uncertain future.
yet believe me, however difficult the new will be, it will be better than
the old. for the first time in your lives, you will feel free and you
will feel proud. you will be in your own country, among brothers.
all hardships will eventually be lessened. it might take time,
but you will achieve. above all, your children's lives will be better.
