Words That Inspire;

I am lucky to have some of my family very close by. Here my granddaughters present a lovely birthday carte they have made for me and a beautiful Orchid.

My Library, Mornings in Jenin...

Mornings in Jenin by Susan Abulhawa;

A very powerful narrative about a world of loss, of home, country and heritage.
Palestinians were driven from their ancestral villages, their homes, their land by the newly formed state of Israel in 1948.

Mornings in Jenin is haunting and heart wrenching, a novel of vital importance. Lending voices to the headlines, it forces to take a look at one of the political conflicts of our lifetimes.
It is more then 60 years since "El Nakba" The Catastroph and "El Naksa" The Disaster happened.
The western world has been and still is taciturn when it comes to tell what happened to the Palestinians and their Country. There has been and still is great injustice.

I hope, for peace in the world.

A kingdom founded on injustice never lasts. Seneca Roman Philosopher mid first century AD
