Palestine ...

*** PALESTINE ****

... at long last!

I've no idea how or why but I've been busy lately, I thought the UN was going to vote tonight on the Palestinian bid, but it is already done, and well done too!

Well, it saved me from all the waiting, but now I can't stop the tears ...

It's a beginning, I know, to a happy ending and two proper states, I hope

But at least now when the Palestinians say they want to live side by side in peace with Israel, the whole world would know they mean it ...

We all want to live in PEACE with you Israel ... I sincerely hope you're listening

This is a happy day

19 November 2012

During President Obama's tour of Asia since he was re-elected, and while visiting Yangon University in Burma  he made this, an impassioned and very touching monumental speech supporting the right of each and everyone to freedom ... one that is full and without fear

Music to all ears ... I watched, and listened,  a few times already ....

Lets hope
