While many continue to flee the country -- others are coming home.
A young boy says it was lonely in Lebanon.
(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) SYRIAN BOY ABDALLAH, SAYING:
"Lebanon is not beautiful. They did not treat us well. Nobody talked to us or to our parents."
A woman is relieved to come home.
(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) SYRIAN WOMAN AMIRA MUBARAK, SAYING:
"No place is more beautiful than our country. I was saying that I was happy once I arrived in Syria. No place is more beautiful. May God bring back security and safety."
