There were 28 active conflicts in 2018. CNN had collected letters written between loved ones who have been in the path of past and present hostilities. These true stories show that love can endure the worst pains of war. Yana's letter is one out of five letters from CNN's series Love in Conflict. Yana Galang’s life was changed forever on April 14, 2014. Her 17-year-old daughter, Rifkatu, was at boarding school in Chibok, Nigeria, for her final week of exams. Boko Haram extremists stormed the school and kidnapped her from her bed. In total 276 girls, ages 16 to 18, were taken that night.
