Real, final, absolute: Death in Gaza July 21, 2014

Nothing can moves you?

There is nothing more real than death.
Nothing more, true, than death.
It’s absolute. It’s final.

When death erases hundreds of lives.
Thousands.
Or even just 4 children.
The action that created death
Is as real, true and absolute
As death itself.

Yet even with this concrete truth.
This overwhelming evidence of atrocity.
It does not move you.
It does not fuel you with fire.
It does not fuel you,
To act, with conviction.

This is not a “conflict”.
There is an oppressor.
There is an oppressed people.

The only conflict for you is this.
Will you be honest with yourself?
Will you be honest with others?
Will you share this truth, without fear?

Are you willing to take a side?
Whether it’s with the oppressor or the oppressed.

Let the world know.

I know, that my freedom as an individual,
Will not be complete, without the freedom,
Of the Palestinians.

Sherif Mktbi shared #‎FreePalestine‬

“Know what it is to be a child . . .
To see a world in a grain of sand
And heaven in a wild flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”
William Blake

Note: 

Is life that chose me and made me survive all the hurdles and illnesses

It is events that directed me in the alleys of life

Guided me in the countless forks that led me

Far away from the path that my parents wished me to take

And strove to show me at every bend

Ease up your judgment on your fellow neighbor.

He might seems a tad luckier

He could look Not be so lucky in the opportunities of his life.

Both of you, share this common characteristic:

You both had to struggle all the way

And try to grab the few moments of satisfaction and hope.
