To My Heart - Snap 927




When Mansoor Adayfi was 19 years old, he was shipped to Guantanamo Bay detention center. He had no idea where he was or why he was there. But he was held there for 14 years. During that time, Mansoor attended informal marriage classes held by a fellow inmate and began writing love letters despite never having been in love.

Mansoor is currently writing a memoir about his time at Guantanamo. You can read his writing here.
