Two Middle East mothers are sitting in a cafe chatting over a plate
of tabouli and a pint of goat's milk.
The older of the two pulls a bag out of her purse and starts flipping
through photos. They start reminiscing.

'This is my oldest son Mohammed. He would have been 24 years old

'Yes, I remember him as a baby' says the other mother cheerfully.

He's a martyr now though' mum confides.

'Oh, so sad dear' says the other.

And this is my second son Kalid. He would have been 21.'

'Oh, I remember him,' says the other happily, 'he had such curly hair
when he was born'.

'He's a martyr too' says mum quietly.

'Oh, gracious me ...' Says the other.

'And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed.
He would have been 18, she whispers.

'Yes' says the friend enthusiastically, 'I remember when he first
started school'

'He's a martyr also,' says mum, with tears in her eyes.

After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks
wistfully at the photographs and says...

'They blow up so fast these days, don't they...'
