Description

For a young refugee living with loss and terror-filled memories, time is measured by the next bucket of water, the next portion of bread, and the next call to prayer. Here, where everything - walls, floor, courtyard - is mud, a boy's heart can still long for freedom, independence, and safety. And here, where life is terribly fragile, the strength to endure grows out of need. But the strength to dreams comes from within.

Contributor Notes

Rukhsana Khan brings us to the reality that faces so many of the world's children. This story was inspired by her meeting with one unforgettable boy and his family. Rukhsana Khan is the author of Muslim Child and Bedtime Ba-a-alk. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.
