I sit down with Aseel Bannoura.  Her face is cheerful, her eyes are bright, her words are astoundingly articulate.  Her eloquent English allows her to be perfectly frank with me as I start to ask her questions.  Her frankness alone takes me by surprise, but even more striking is the lack of bitterness or anger in her tone.  She just tells it to me straight.  Even with a whiff of humor now and then.
