New Year

January 9, 2010

As we enter a new year, taking time to reflect on the successes and failures of the past is a good thing to do.

All kinds of resistance, resistance means everything. Beginning with the word “no” and ending with holding arms. And in between there are many ways, [including] a political struggle, a popular struggle. They want us to accept them as they are: racist, discriminating, an apartheid regime in Israel. This is what we don’t want. We cannot coexist with such people. But we can coexist with people like us. This is the way we are looking for. -Leila Khaled

    Resistance is an art of love.. we love our land and familys, we love our poems and words, that’s why we say NO, and why we hold pens and arms, to plant the seeds of love, teaching that another world is possible.
    “we resist, therefore we exist..” no?
    Have a good year Laurel.
