In Hopes The World Can Learn From These Children, And Their Parents

A couple of terrific quotes in the story A Mideast Bond, Stitched of Pain and Healing in today’s NYT:

Some ask Mr. Aman how he can live among the people whose army destroyed his family.  “I have never felt there was a difference among people — Jews, Muslims, Christians — we are all human beings,” he says. “I worked in Israel for years and so did my father. We know that it is not about what you are but who you are. And that is what I have taught my children.”

Ms. Elizarov, Orel’s mother, noted that in places like Alyn Hospital, political tensions do not exist. Then she said, “Do we need to suffer in order to learn that there is no difference between Jews and Arabs?”

May this message reach far around the world in 2010!
