May you all have peace.

Please know that I am not posting these to start-up an Israeli-Palestinian debate. These experiences are of young men growing up in Gaza, and I found them ... I don't think I have the right word to describe them. But certainly worth reading. Again, not even in the context of the conflict... but as a glimpse into an entirely different life than the one YOU have seen and known, and how that is every bit as real to the person experiencing it as your own pov is to you.



We are very limited on our own. Our perspective is very small, and we can become so judgmental based upon that small perspective. But that small perspective is often so full of ignorance as to the reality that someone else has experienced. That is true whether we are reading from the pov of someone from the other side of the world, or from the 'hood, or from a reserve or a refugee camp, or anyone at all.


I'm gonna post the links now to the five stories:

Peace to you again,
your servant, and sister, and a slave of Christ,

Oh MAN! Sorry, about the faces attached to the links. I forget how NOT to do that.

Peace again!
