Yousef Bashir was fifteen years old when an Israeli soldier shot him in the back outside his home in Gaza. But in the months after the attack, he would come to see a different side of his occupiers, as a team of Israeli doctors helped him learn to walk again. As an adult, Bashir has become an advocate for peace. His journey is documented in his new memoir, "The Words of My Father."
