Ayub Asaliya was on his way to school last Sunday


March 18, 2012 - My heart keeps breaking over him, the loving hand touching his face, the loss felt by the person cupping his cheek for the last time. Is that his father? Ever since I first saw his photo, I cannot recall where but there was no name for him, he symbolized all the martyred children of Palestine for me.

Ayub Asaliya was on his way to school last Sunday

Ayub Asaliya

March 18, 2012

My heart keeps breaking over him, the loving hand touching his face, the loss felt by the person cupping his cheek for the last time. Is that his father? Ever since I first saw his photo, I cannot recall where but there was no name for him, he symbolized all the martyred children of Palestine for me. I didn't know who he was but I kept his photo on my desktop and have been looking at it for days.

Today, for no particular reason I came upon Shayna's blog, and a post she had written titled Ayub Asaliya:

Ayub was a little twelve-year-old boy on his way to school who was killed by the IDF "shelling". Hearing about little Ayub really hit me hard. I think it is because he was on his way to school. The little boy was doing the "right thing" headed to school, and his life here was taken from him by dudes conducting war in a civilian population.

I donít like when people use emotionally charged words to convey their message. But I think about it, it really is like little Ayub was murdered on the way to school. I donít think a child deserves that.

I donít know when I will stop crying over Ayub. I think what happened to him, speaks to the wrong of conducting war on a civilian population.

I wish I could find a picture of Ayub from when he was alive, because I would like to post it here.

I knew this was the boy in my photo. After googling his name I came upon another photo of him. Yes, it was the same boy. AFP says he was killed last Sunday.

Shayna's blog is covered with pink roses, belly dancing and surfing. And Ayub too. If anyone finds a photo of Ayub when he was alive, could you please send it to @shaynaamour.

Shayna, thank you for expressing such beauty and purity of heart.
