The evening that Israeli ground troops moved into Gaza I had this dream. My home town, Green Valley, was invaded by outlaws. They came in trucks and closed off the canyon so that nobody could get out. I tried to use my cell phone to call my mother but it wouldn't work. I went to a payphone to call 911 and it said I needed to deposit 40 cents in order to call 911. I knew that nobody was going to come and save us and I needed to plan my own escape. I knew the mountains there better than anyone, and so I set off hiking my way to freedom.
