Princess Diana was taking a walk in Angola in 1997, the field wasn't planted with seeds, it was full of mines. She travelled there to raise international attention to the suffering of land mine victims. In 1997 it was the first time to create awareness about mines when she took the step.

I had a dream few days ago. I was a 10 year old child and black and we were living in Africa. It was in the middle of night when our door opened suddenly and I was so afraid. Some white men came in with guns in their hands. They took my father and my mother. I was hiding behind the table so they couldn’t see me. I remember that I was crying, I wanted to scream but I couldn't. When I woke up I was sweating and I was also crying.
