During my visits to some of my beloved injured people of Gaza at hospital here , where I thought I will be the one making things abit easier on them , by standing by their side , or I can be the one saying a word to give them some strength . It turned out that I was the one who felt stronger and even happier after the visit .
My visit started with the children wing , where I passed by Hamzeh’s room a tiny little kid with a very nice hair :) to find him sleeping :) literally like an angel .
I had to leave him then to go to a 8 Y.O blind cute girl (Shahed) with screws and gypsum on her both legs, who insisted that I should stay and to have chocolates with her (thought that I should be the one bringing candies though !) , then all of a sudden she said an ayah from quran , to leave me in awe , and then told me to give her a tape from the quran tapes she has in the hospital room to let her play it, and silly me , was looking around ,couldn’t find it . till her father came after my desperate attempts , to get a big bag that I didn’t expect it will be full of tapes .she picked one and turned her little tape player on . I was looking at her with mixed emotions . She is just an awesome child .
then she told her dad to show me her pictures when she was dressing nice in Gaza . and let me be honest ,she is a beatiful girl , that the attcks took much of her beauty ,and her blind eyes miss alot to see how much she is adorable.
She said many nice things like ” Yeay , finally no shooting in Gaza , would you come back there with us ? “
and ” I love the resistance ” .
and I wanted to give her a big hug when she told her dad : ” Why can’t they let her stay with us ? ” … I felt so special :) .
Then passed again by Hamzeh’s room ,found him awake this time ,to raise the victory sign with his little hand once he saw the kufeyya on my shoulders . (he is getting better ,will get back to Gaza by this week .We are friends now ) :)
then i went to the women wing , where many of them can’t hide their worried faces over their families they left behind ,or their tearing eyes that they try hard not to show them . I was overwhelmed with their nice welcome ..
To the guys wing , where I could hear resistance songs out of their rooms ,to draw a smile on my face even before entering any .
This wing where most of them lost one or many of their parts (Legs , hands ) or some have distorted faces . yet , very strong spirits they have .and can’t tell how much dignity they have .
You can’t enter there just simply , you are visiting real men ,the ones protecting their families, and I was this tiny girl , asking about those heros , iI could see it in their eyes , they find it abnormal , they still find themselves able to do more . and I do believe it .
One of them who lost both of his legs , told me with a big smile that they will be back there ,to go on .
I know my people are strong ,protective ,and will do whatever for the land the cause , but visiting them , strengthened my faith of the non-stop giving ,and that no matter how much we lost , we still can give more with a smile ,with nothing to bring our nice spirits down ..
I just love my people to the max ,and I even can’t tell you how bad …
And I promise I will never fail my homeland and the cause , would walk on their track .
Was honored to meet them,hoping one day we will free the land from the river to the sea,and live together
