In a late response to Izzi’s post. This photo below is all about pride for me… It’s sad that we lost this kid, Faris* (Arabic for Knight, not a coincidence as you can see), but he is a springhead of pride for us… Palestinians. This picture always reminds me of the poem for the Palestinian poet Tawfiq Zayyad:
إنا هنا باقون
كأننا عشرون مستحيل
في اللد , والرمله , والجليل
هنا على صدوركم باقون كالجدار
* Faris ‘Ouda, shot dead by an “Israeli” tank officer near the eastern borders of Gaza Strip on October 29th, 2000. Faris was then 13 years old.
