Be Thankful

Respect to these heroes who relentlessly battle calamities even in such place where many of the tragedies are caused by people. To our disgrace, too many people are blinded by the comfort and security they are privileged with; the fact that a heart stops beating, blood stops circulating, once rosy and warm skin loses its vigour, and convicted mind ceases to fight – we are to blame if we grow numb to the pain. Something is still horrendously wrong, and it is our duty to be disturbed.

“Israel does not discriminate between rocks or trees or human beings.” – Jawad Budier, a Gazan paramedic whose colleague was killed when an Israeli shell hit their ambulance in Beit Hanoun on 25 July 2014.
