Traffic, in vehicles and on foot, is moving steadily through the checkpoint when we arrive at 7:45. We devote most of our time to photographing the filth by the entrance to the checkpoint and in the area in which hundreds of children will again be boarding buses that will take them to schools in other Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem come September.  May she who can persuade the Municipality of Jerusalem to clean up the garbage ― and paint a crosswalk, for the children’s safety ― be blessed.
