    In 1964 I was in high school, living in Israel. As a teenager I liked to go swimming in a neihboring public pool in a small jewish town. One day I became friends witha beautiful jewih girl. As we talked and played, the jewish life guard called her and told her not to talk to me because I was an Arab. She told him it was not of his business...I still admire this girl..,Later I wrote a poem to express my feelings..innocent.. from the heart...before..I was told what was right and what was wrong,,,and still have a big place in my heart. Here it is I am not an Arab, I am not a Jew You are me, I am you I am not white, I am not black I am all colors, light and dark I don't live here, I don't live there Earth is my home, I live everywhere The warm sun, the fresh air For me, you, those in despair Give your hand, feel my heart Share the pain, joy, see the light Now after living in the USA for 34 years, I can see clarly what is the problem: As humans we have lost compassion for each other and brought shame on humanity. Years after the war, long after the fall. A child asks, why there is a new wall
