Andreea Is Living Miscociâs Nightmare
The hard times that Sorin Miscoci is going through are fully lived by his fiancÃ©e, Andreea Costiuc. She has somehow developed a sixth sense. In every moment, she feels the nightmare that Sorin doesnât seem to get out from very soon.
PLANS. Sorin and Andreea planned to get married at the beginning of September.
THE WAITINGWith the power of the person that had the courage of going to Medicine, Andreea devoted herself to theatre, and now she is a student at theatre critics. Maybe this is one of the things that make her bear the tragedy a lot easier. "They will be back, wonât they? Yes, they will be back for sureâ¦", she repeats from time to time and one cannot say whether it is a question or self-encouragement. Together with her mother, Dana, and aunt, Liana, Andreea is like a fighter surrounded by trustfully allies. Personally, I have rarely seen such support, such care and affection. For her, but especially for Sorin. The man who won Andreeaâs heart and gave her an engagement ring. Day and night, Andreeaâs family beats as one heart, and only the people close to them can understand the meaning of this. An endless row of sleepless nights, of days too long for the waiting that seems to have ceased in receiving the expected answer: the release of the four!
TEARS AND PRAYERSEver since Sorinâs kidnapping, a candle is always burning, day and night, in the house of Andreea Costiuc. She is the guide that Sorin must follow in his walk back home. It is the place he is as waited as in his familyâs house, which is between Sibiu and Abrud. Maybe, in such moments, getting closer to God is done by instinct, but this doesnât doubt the sufferance or the faith of the prayers said in all the moments of a day. "Sometimes it is very hard. I think I am feeling the sufferance he is feeling there in Iraq. We feel each other a lot and we laughed more than once at the thought that we were able to feel each otherâs condition. I believe he is very tortured there, I believe he would like to come back home, to get away from this nightmare", are the words that Andreea is fearfully and hopefully repeating. The holly pictures in the house have another meaning now, and the books with prayers are being opened more often and more faithfully. Help them, God!
THE MARATHON OF WAITINGMost of the inhabitants of Sibiu are busy and indifferent to the sufferance of a family. This is somehow normal, if we take into account that half of the country is under water, poverty is everywhere, and ignorance is the number one rule in the day-by-day life. There has been one week since Andreaa Costiucâs family, some of her friends and some inhabitants of Sibiu have started coming every day in the park in front of the Sibiu City Hall, where a marathon of waiting started. For three hours, between 3 and 6 oâclock in the afternoon, the people that wait Sorin to come back home come there to be together. They are less and less, but there is nothing discouraging enough. The people pass by, look at the postersâ¦some of them look for the heavens, others say wicked comments, and the least of them stop: "They are still to be released! The poor people!". The words that donât hurt are good enough.
MESSAGESWith gestures that you might guess after staying a little while with her, Andreea is looking for support in her personal mobile phone. She received the last message from Sorin on this phone. She received it a few hours before the thunderstruck news with their kidnapping. "Look, see, he wanted to come back home as soon as possible. He was saying he was hardly waiting to leave, that he didnât like it at all"â¦ Andreea takes a deep breath. The tears are stopped from falling. She always looks in vain and looks for explanations and balance in all the things surrounding her.
THE STORYAndreea and Sorin have been together for the past four years. He leaving from Sibiu to Bucharest didnât tear the relation apart. Sorin was traveling from Sibiu to Bucharest to Sibiu very often. Most of the times, before going home, to his parents, he was visiting Andreea. Andreea and Sorin met each other during a casting for ProTV Sibiu. Sorin was a camera operator, and Andreea one of the contestants for a broadcaster job. She didnât win the contest, but Sorin understood she was to be with him for the rest of their lives. "We kept a distance between us for more than two years. He came to Bucharest more than once just for a few hours to see me. There were times when he didnât get to see his family", Andreea was saying. The memories are many. A lot of pictures and movies with them in the moment of their engagement and in the moment in which Sorinâs parents came to Andreeaâs parents to ask for her hand in marriage are now the most priced treasure of the ones that wait for him to be back.
CONFUSE FEELINGSSorinâs departure for Iraq has been one for which getting ready meant a little more. Andreea and her family say that now they do not see with the same amusement Sorinâs jokes before his departure. Dana, Andreeaâs mother, is the person that balances the family. Nevertheless, there is nothing able to repair anything for now. "You donât know how much we laughed or how much he joked, saying this might be the mission of his life, that he was prepared for anything. He was obviously much scared than this, he said he had been prepared and warned about the danger, but he wanted to go and I donât believe there could have been anyone to stop him", Andreea sadly, but optimistically concludes.
THE TV SETS IN THE COSTIUC HOUSE HAVE RENDERED SILENTIn the past two weeks, the TV sets in the house in which Andreea lives in have rendered silent. No radios, not TV sets, nothing. "We have reached to harming ourselves by listening to all the stupid things and aberrations broadcasted on TV. There appeared so many specialists that every word said seems to hit us even harder. I donât want to see any more news. If anything happens to Sorin(photo), good or bad, we will find out immediately anyway. I hope everything will be OK". This is the idea of the entire family, because in the Costiuc family sufferance is beyond words, and the support for Andreea should be admired and shared with the ones that are still to find out about the real meaning of the family.
LETTER TO THE AMBASSADORNon-Governmental organizations have sent yesterday to the Iraqâs Ambassador in Romania, Adel Murad Ali Murad, a letter through which they signal the necessity of an intensification in the efforts of the Iraqi authorities for the release of the four Romanians. The organizations ask the Ambassador to send to the Iraqi authorities the wish of the Romanian civil society that the actions for freeing the four should be intensified and propose the common mobilization of the authorities for the effectiveness of the releasing procedures. The letter also reminds the case of Florence Aubernas, the French journalist, and her guide, kidnapped in Iraq 117 days ago.
MEASURES IN WASHINGTONThe crisis of the Romanian hostages kidnapped in Iraq will be one of the issues that the Romanian External Affairs Minister, Mihai Razvan Ungureanu, will discuss upon with his American counterpart, Condoleeza Rice, during his visit in Washington that started today. "We will certainly discuss also about the external affairs, about Romaniaâs external presence, we will discuss about the NATO reform. We will discuss about the way in which Romania can attend the projects of security and stability in the area of the Middle Orient, as well as in the immediate proximity, in the area of the Black Sea", the Minister said.
