From the Diary of an Almost 4-Year OldBy Hanan Mikhael Ashrawi

Tomorrow the bandages will come off,I wonder, will I see half an oven? Half an apple?Half my mother's face with my one remaining eye?I did not see the bulletBut felt its pain exploding in my head.his image did not disintegrate.The soldier with his big gun and steady hands.And the look in his eyes I could not understand.

I can see him so clearly with my eyes closed,It could be that inside our heads.

We each have one spare set of eyesTo make up for the ones we lose.

Next month, on my birthday,I'll have a brand new glass eyeMaybe things will look round and fat at the middle.I gaze through all my marbles,They make the world look strange.

I hear a nine-month-old has also lost an eye,I wonder if my soldier shot her too,A soldier looking for little girls who look him in the eye.I'm old enough, almost four,I've seen enough of lifeBut she's just a babyWho didn't know any better.

He didn’t expect


With a shot to the head, or to the back

How many more we must kill?

With a shot to the head

Or to the lung


Nearly 2000 Palestinians were killed in the past year

most of them are under the age of 15

Nearly 25,000 Palestinians were seriously injured
