I also finished Carter's book, Palestine, Peace Not Apartheid. There, too, I believe we need to speak. Jimmy Carter says it as it is. He has been involved in attempting peace there for many years. He knows the players and he knows what needs to be done. It is another example of how when we look away, peoples' lives are destroyed.
Well, I am actually in a hopeful mood tonight, and sure that we can step forth toward the changes to be made. I do see that the "people" want these changes. It is the leaders who hold us back. It is time to rein them in as we settle into peace.
Sleep tight tonight!
