Description :
Lida's home is exposed to the shooting that she has had to abandon the entire top floor of her house. She boarded up her shattered windows with planks or with tarpaulin and sees no point in fixing them. She lives in back rooms of the bottom floor of her home as far as she can from the line of fire. She avoids turning on lights. To see in the dark she uses a light bulb attached to a wire that she plugs into wall sockets in each room. In this manner she can limit the light and prevent attracting fire.
