Friendly Fire

Mariam Ghani
2002

Friendly fire dramatizes the split Ghani felt as an Afghan American when the US bombed Afghanistan in October 2001. Ghani in her sleep knocks over a glass beside her bed which enters her dreams as a rain of shard as red as the pomegranate seeds she ate as a child and US troops with green night vision glasses parachuting landing behind her eyelids. A week later the first casualties were announced as the result of friendly fire.
