In the photograph, Nawar sits on a step, chin in her hands, brown eyes wide, wearing lipstick and a crimson hair bow that matches her flouncy tulle skirt. She looks like any eight-year-old playing dress up, posing for the camera, looking slightly away. Perhaps it is the last picture ever taken of Nawar, snapped on a whim by her mother who now clutches it to her heart, a grief she can hold. What she remembers— the neck’s gaping wound, her little girl suffering for hours in her bloodsoaked bed, those brown eyes bewildered by pain. If you are Nawar’s mother you will take exception to the American’s use of the word almost to describe the results of the hastily planned, deadly attack. You will scream that everything went wrong the same way it went wrong five years earlier when Nawar’s curly-haired brother, Abdulrahman, died in a similar raid ordered from inside the most protected house in the world by a different American president who sent a drone to dismantle a family barbecue in Yemen where Abdulrahman was eating and laughing with his cousin. In this matter of children’s blood, there is no difference— almost is a desecration, and everything is wrong.

A native of California, Karen Allred McKeever currently resides in the Chicago suburbs, where her days consist of teaching English, writing poetry, gardening, feeding friends and family, and walking her dog.
