"I understand I am not guilty, but I am like a trapped animal. I blame myself only for the fact that I knew where and to whom I intended to go. I felt I was not coming back. But I haven't listened to anybody's warnings, so I went. The thing is: I do not have to suffer in vain. I could have not forseen everything. It was a trap, and I am still trapped here. Why did I go to the trap knowing that some situations would force me to do something out of the order?" Gryb wrote.
