Travel Log: This is what I first saw when I came into the Aida Refugee camp and I immediately thought “Oh my gosh – Hamas militants in training! – this is going to be a tough week!” But after getting to know these boys and gaining a little understanding of their culture I see something totally different now when I view this image – I see 10 year old boys playing with toy guns just like I did when I was 10. When I was thier age my friends and I loved to play war and light fires – even though I grew up in a peace loving, hippy family in the woods. It’s what normal boys do. If someone came by with a camera I would strike a pose and point the toy gun at them too.
