Amjad, 14, State of Palestine

October 2014: “I wish for Gaza to be reconstructed. … I wish for all the houses that were destroyed to be rebuilt and replaced with even nicer houses and big towers. I wish for Gaza to become beautiful. We have lived in distress for a long time, and it is time to live a better life,” says Amjad Rayyan, in the area of Toffah, east of Gaza City. “I was happy to return to school. I was happy to see my friends, but I am always anxious and worried because of what happened.”
