  1. Aloha Yasmeen,
    Al Jazeera ate my comment, but I wanted to thank you for your extra effort in putting into words the horrific human cost of conflict and the human reasons why it continues. I hope your words will be read widely and will help all to put the pain aside and take steps to live in peace, respect, and love.
    In reading your words, I felt both your pain and your pride, and learned a lot.
