People Speaking - Documentary

— "Do you have a secure room in your house?"

— "No, i don't think so."

— "It's the room with the window that can be shut with a metal door."

— "No, i don't have it."

— "Because I heard that it is very dangerous to use it as a living or sleeping room."

— "OK, mama, i don't have such a room, so i probably won't use it like that."

— "Do you know why? I saw a documentary about it on the television. It is because these rooms are built with a kind of concrete that emits toxic gases and it suffocates you if you are there for more than a few hours. It is fine to sit there and do some homework for a couple of hours, but not any more ..."

— "But why are you telling all that? I don't have such a room, so it is completely irrelevant."

— "... and it is especially dangerous in Jerusalem, because the soil in Jerusalem emits other gases which mix with the ones from the concrete and are even more dangerous."

— "So what?"

— "What so what? It is very dangerous and I am telling you that, because you live in Jerusalem. There was also a high school there and they had to rebuild it ..."

— "But mama, i finished high school nine years ago and i don't have a secure room in my house."

— "OK. What else can you tell me? Do you still do music?"

— "Yes."

— "How do you do music?"

— "I go to a rehearsal room with my friends and play."

— "And what kind of songs?"

— "All kinds."

— "Oh, OK. And do you sing?"

— "No, not really, i can't sing at all."

— "Why do you say that? You sing very well, better than anyone in the world. You must sing."

— "If you say so, mama."

— "That's right, you sing better than anyone-anyone-anyone in the world."

Oh mama.
