Lest I be accused of one-sided-ness
Duck and cover: An Israeli settler protects his daughter as Palestinian assailants fire on his fellow settlers, who were holding a memorial ceremony on a road near the Gush Katif settlement in the Gaza Strip. The settlers were marking the spot where a pregnant woman and her four young daughters were killed by militants last week. (SF Chron)
See, it's all bad. This kid doesn't really understand the difference between herself and some equally terrified Palestinian kid somewhere. But this how they both must grow up.
I note as well how dissimilar the expressions are. He seems almost calm - maybe bored by the unfriendly fire. That's pretty sad too.
