You could be a mother watching your child sleep… Gaza, Sderot or anywhere
You could be an 81-year-old man who hasn’t had a breath of fresh air in weeks
You could be a father anxiously awaiting news
You could be the victim of gang violence
You could be a child desperate for a few minutes of sunshine
You could be a 90-year-old woman who believes she will see peace in her lifetime… Gaza, Sderot or anywhere
You could be her 16-year-old grandson who has given up on hope altogether
You could be scared to step foot outside your home or even go to work
You are scared… even if mainly for others
You ponder what will happen to your country
You wonder what will happen to your society… when the war ends
You think for hours about communities around the world
You cry when you read hateful words
You know things could be better
You are human…

Yael Brygel is the Media and Communications Division Coordinator of Teaching Israel
