In July 2008, I travelled to Palestine; I was looking for an experience with potency and meaning, and I found it. The General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed 2014 the International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, with the goal of increasing awareness of the core themes of the question of Palestine. Writing this piece was my contribution to that goal.
