A 12th-Grader Feels For The Children of Gaza

Children in Gaza don’t play in parks or swim in the beach anymore; instead they see massive craters, demolished houses, burnt-out shops, hospital rooms, schools and cars. Amputated limbs, burned skin, still-burning fires cause deep emotional injuries which are more crippling to this nation, even more than any physical damage.

Omar Bandak, a 17-year-old who is a member of the UN Children’s Organisation, says: “We used to go on outings. Here in Bethlehem, there is only home and school to go to. During the curfew we can’t even leave the house. All we want is peace, and to live without tanks and soldiers. I want to be able to feel like other children in the world.”

You and I are blessed. We cannot imagine the daily struggles of the Palestinian child. From watching documentaries on Palestine, I am drawn to the Palestinian people’s resilience... their desire to be free.
