This flash highlights the fact that the Palestinian child lives a life unlike that of any other child. His childhood is distorted by an occupation that kills his innocence and his dreams. He lives in constant fear and anxiety, where worries force him to be a “grown-up” while still a child. Actually, he is a grown-up, for he challenges the toughest circumstances, helps his family, and stands up to the Israeli tanks. Amazingly, the Palestinian child sets the example to mature people, even before he goes to school.
