Bird: "Why are you sitting here, little girl?"

Girl: "I'm from Jerusalem. I was on my way to school and I heard a voice coming from the masjid."

Al-Aqsa Mosque: "Don't turn around, my little girl. I am the prisoned Aqsa. I'm the place where Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, had his night journey. I am the Muslims' first Quibla and the third of the Two Holy Masjids. For a long time, I've been in pain and struggle. Can't you hear the shovels that want to destroy me? Can't you hear me? Can't everyone around me hear?"

Girl: "From that moment on, I am afraid to leave him alone."

Bird: "How can I help you?"

Girl: "I want you to fly all over the world. Collect children, tell them the story of Al-Aqsa. Ask them to come with you and save it before it is too late."
