“I have a son who teaches children skateboarding in Hawari Shar Park and uses a motorbike for transportation. On days when it is too hot, I have bought him two cool-boxes to sell water and juice. I felt like he really enjoyed his job, and that made me really happy. One day when he was coming back from work, he called me and said, ‘Dad, I am almost home.’ There was no word from him after 30 minutes, so I called him and his phone was closed! I knew something was wrong. One of his friends called me and said your son has been hit by a car and is in the hospital. I immediately went there, I saw my son was unconscious and was in a full body cast. I am not going to say how painful that scene was, because it is difficult for everyone to feel that. These days, all I think about is seeing my son on his feet again, just like he used to be.”
