    Will I Sleep or Will I Die ?

     

    It's been a bloody and merciless day here in Gaza. All day I record the names of the people who were killed and the locations. I write it in notes for my friends. Every day it is more unbelievable. War planes are targeting houses with entire families in them. My own house shakes from nearby explosions. My friends share the pictures of the death and destruction in each new attack.  They are sad, horrific and they make your stomach turn.  But we feel we must document the truth of what is happening here. 
    The outside world doesn't know.
    Do you have the stomach to look at the picture of a young child from your town, with his head blown open and his brain visible, as his shocked parent looks at him in horror, not understanding or believing what his own eyes are seeing.
    And then you see it again, and again, and again.
    They tell us to get out if we want to live.
    Where are we supposed to go to ? There is nowhere.
    Nowhere.
    Nowhere.
    And the outside world does not care about us, about our old people, about our women, about our children, about our world being blasted apart.
    American's are silent. They do not care about our suffering.
    Israel is trying to solve it's political problems by killing all of us. Nobody seems to care.
    This is just one picture of a mother and infant killed today. I chose a picture which will not be too difficult for your eyes.
    Believe me, your eyes do not want to see what we see here every day.
    I need to sleep now. I will try to rest. I do not know if I will wake up again. I do not know if I will be bombed in my sleep. I do not know if my family will be killed before morning and I will never see them again.
    I only know Gaza is in pain.
    And none of the powerful people care.
