Yes I am.An Europe tour maybe
Next has recently cried tears of joy
I have whistled many times in the face of Danger.
In 2005 I was with my 2 children in Egypt, trying to cross the boarder in to Gaza, where my husband was at that time and my job with USAID.
I had Israeli soldiers screaming in our face, pointing guns at us. They were refusing us entrance. But were very aggressive and scary.
We were never allowed in.
Then again in 2007 i crossed the King Hussein Bridge to the west bank.
Sitting on a beautiful day in the center of Ramallah, there was a small garden in the middle of the rotary and the people were all doing their daily things. Laundry hanging out windows, children playing football, ppl shopping for fresh produce.
Then this load rumble could be felt, felt to me like an earth quake. Windows began to close, kids ran inside, shop owners trying to close. Fear was in the air. And I sat there with 2 friends of mine who are much younger than me and are from Syria.
We watched as 3 military tanks rolled in blocking 3 of the streets that came into the rotary and garden,
BOOM BOOM BOOM...they were randomly shooting at buildings for no reason!!!!
There was only one way to go.
Runnnnn up hill of the remaining cobble street way.
I personally have never ran so far so fast. I ran till the the explosions could not be felt in my bones and the screams were far.
i knew holding up an American passport would NOT stop them, so i was left to run.
Beside the day my husband was killed, that was the scariest most danger filled day of my life
NEXT IS:::has any book, Song or Piece of Art made a impact on your life?
Estel you move me with your experience...that is so unjust.But we always aspire to better the wrongs in our lives whether we succeed or not.
And the answer is May it be by Enya.It's given me peace and hope and the strength to take a step whenever I required it,even now.
Next has eaten a whole cake at some point of their life(I have not tried yet)
Thankfully "no". Can't imagine consuming that much sweets in one sitting.
Next makes it a goal to reread The Lord of the Rings trilogy at least once a year. I do, and right now I'm on the third book. Aragorn has just completed the Paths of the Dead with his companions. (And why didn't the movie include Elrond's sons and the Rangers at this point? Just a thought.)
