“He sleeps with a loaf of bread in his arms”

Watch this video and weep. . . . literally.

The Israeli attacks on Gaza in winter ’08/09 unleashed such massive death and destruction that we far too frequently discuss the damage in terms of statistics, of large numbers alone. But put all of that aside and watch this short profile on the experience of just one family, which contains within it all that is horrific about “Cast Lead” while comprising only a tiny portion of Gaza’s terrible agony.

One Family in Gaza.

The Awajah family’s suffering—all of Gaza’s suffering—is our moral responsibility. We should be ashamed.
