Azzam is driving, Ahmed in the middle directing him and me by the window,
the visible foreigner, the passport. Something scatters across my hand,
simultaneous with the crashing of a bullet through the ambulance, some
plastic part dislodged, flying through the window.
We stop, turn off the siren, keep the blue light flashing, wait, eyes on
the silhouettes of men in US marine uniforms on the corners of the
buildings. Several shots come. We duck, get as low as possible and I can
see tiny red lights whipping past the window, past my head. Some, it?s
hard to tell, are hitting the ambulance I start singing. What else do you
do when someone?s shooting at you?
