CANADA PARK, West Bank - Zahda Shaker Abu Qtaish wipes tears from her eyes as she sits on a pile of rocks.
"This is my house," she says, pointing to the rubble. "Right here is the bedroom; across the street is the coffee shop and over there is the post office. When you open a window, you can see out over all of the plains.
"I see everything; I remember everything; I will never forget."
For Zahda Shaker Abu Qtaish, 65, this pile of weed-choked stones in the midst of leafy trees will always be special. From it, in her mind, she still sees a store, a schoolhouse, a medical clinic, a cafe, children laughing, goats, donkeys, orchards.
