Forty Years Today

Israel has illegally occupied Gaza and the West Bank for forty years. When my son overheard me mourning this today, he said, "What? Why is it getting away with that?"

I didn't know what to say.

There are really no words.

I hope one day he can travel there in his lifetime and see his great-grandfather's trees rooted deep in a land that is shared by all its citizens, all equal, undivided and unoccupied.
