One thing the article points out is when kids are asked to draw what makes them feel safe, many sketch triangle-shaped houses. The therapists thought it was a fluke, but then realized that the children were focusing on what had become the safest part of their homes: the roof.
The drawings are haunting. I really hope these children find some comfort in letting out the horrors they’ve seen.
