"I can't believe the news today. I can't close my eyes and make it go away.
How long, how long must we sing this song? How long?"
Heard this old U2 song today, made me cry. I feel so helpless and futile when it comes to Gaza (and so many other places where children do not have enough and are frightened).
I read about the International Solidarity Movement and feel as though I would give anything to be with them in Gaza and feel as though I am truly "helping", but as I read Natalie's posts, I hear the same sense of frustration and anger that the World is the way it is. I hear the weariness in her "voice" of the horrible things she experiences and things she sees.
I try to understand that the Universe places us exactly where we're needed, but how many e-mails and letters and donations can I write or make and feel like I am actually accomplishing anything?
I can only hope that as many people feel like me as there are stars in the sky, and that there will be some way, some way, for the Universe to get our message and know that we crave peace on this Earth.
