Sharing will bring justice. Justice will bring peace.

Reaching across human-made borders to our brothers & sisters in Peace. We are One.
Those who stand in the way of peace and empowerment of the residents of Gaza and East Jerusalem deserve to be exposed and embarrassed. We must stop sowing the seeds of future conflict now.

You know there really is still a chance for peace and that chance will definitely increase if we each do our piece. So let’s make peace -- in our homes, in our own hearts, in our relationships, in our communities, in all of our dealings and in the world. Peace be with us all.

I support efforts to end the suffering in Israel and Palestine. I hope that you will be listened to.
Wonderful to see our wise Elders meet and act with communities in Palestine and Israel.
I cannot think of another current example of the human rights abuses occuring in Palestine.
I wish Israeli and Palestinian leaders opened up their hearts for love and peace in this land which -although it seems completely impossible- should and could be the actual source of peace.
