prays for a curfew to keep him home. Maybe a bombing in the market
place will keep him from going today. How could he have been so stupid?
Riding his bicycle down the steps like that. Now his knee is smashed
and he needs an operation. It wouldn't be too bad if he had been
injured by a soldier's bullet. At least then he'd be a hero and not
a stupid boy who fell off his bicycle. Samir need to go to the Jews'
hospital for the operation. When he arrives, he is placed in a ward
with Israeli children around his age. How will they treat a Palestinian
boy? He is thankful that he has learned to speak Hebrew but is dazed
by his surroundings. Will these children be able to see beyond the
years of hatred? Will he be able to come to terms with the death
of his brother at the hands of Israeli soldiers?
