After the Bombs

On a sunny day in 1987, a young Ebrahim Karimi sat in his fourth-grade class gazing out of his school window like any other ten-year-old boy. Looking up to the sky, he saw beautiful glowing orbs of light and marvelled at the pretty colours and shapes they started making. Were these hundreds of mirrors falling, or were they giant fireflies? His wonder was cut short: they were bombs heading straight for his local city. His class jumped out of their chairs and abandoned their textbooks to save themselves. Young Karimi stared up at the luminous objects in awe. He was now forever enthralled with light.
