This story relates that, after a hard day at the university, Mohamad Kawam eats lunch and then joins his friends at the Red Cross office. Next the author describes the office and the activities of the volunteers as they wait for an emergency call. The paper concludes with Kawam's ambulance ride to the site of a bleeding teenager with a bullet wound to the head and Kawam not being able to sleep for a week because of remembering how the innocent teenager had dying between his hands.

From the Paper:

"Talking and chatting on that night made time pass so quickly. Each one of the seven volunteers talked about what they had encountered throughout their day. They were all neighbors but came from different universities; this made the conversation more exciting. By 10 p.m., they couldn't handle the fatigue. Six volunteers decided to sleep, and there was one volunteer called Hisham Baba who had the day off at the university, so he wasn't sleepy at all. Baba suggested staying awake to take emergency calls.
"Baba barely watched TV since the snoring of the six volunteers was really a loud symphony. As the clock in the end of the corridor beeped at 12 a.m., the loud telephone rang strongly as well. Even though the volunteers were not new, the phone always had its own suspense."
