Trying to imagine the scene-change at Rafah crossing
Trying to imagine the scene-change at Rafah crossing. After aching silence, engines start. Dust spurts upward. Human voices open wide in amazement and witless confusion. After days of the unthinkable, finally a change.
The paralysis of diplomatic deadlock, now unimaginable furor.
How will the goodness be meted out? Every family crazed to fill the bellies of their traumatized young. Rumors circulating in the haze about desperate children eating too much at once, dying. Nothing is known, each moment a new life-altering choice and only the fuddled reasonings of your gut to guide you.
