Separated by a massacre

My father sent me this. This is how he describes it: "The story of a Palestinian poet who, during the massacres of Sabra and Shatilla in Lebanon during the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon, everybody thought she got killed in the massacre. She also thought all her family got killed. As she was recently reading poetry on the Abu Dhabi TV, her neighbours from the Sabra refugee camp days (back in 1982) saw her and recognised her. Since the neighbours also knew that her daughter did not get killed in the massacre but survived and had been living all these years in a refugee camp, they contacted the Abu Dhabi TV station, and the TV station arranged the surprise meeting between the mother and her daughter whom she thought she was dead. You will cry!"
