@linjevity A young Palestinian girl scampers along the back streets of old Ramallah, snacking on a lollipop. Her friends are nearby; they shout, chase each other on bicycles, and play roughly among old building rubble. The kids here are curious, brash, and eager to show off to a visitor in their backyard. They are certainly of a different batch, compared to the playful children that run up and down the streets of Jerusalem. One wonders how such a city like Ramallah toughens and shapes those youth.
