Ship to Gaza got a letter from Gaza:
Yesterday we were waiting for the boat to go to Gaza. In our opinion, there is no boat. It is a glimmer of hope. It was a straw of hope for someone who sank. The straw was gold-plated. I mean that gold here is the humanity of the people on this boat But this straw did not arrive because Israel kidnapped this straw, “the boat” You can imagine the tragedy of the sunken person “Gaza”.
Even straw could not reach him. You can imagine this tragedy The international community watches and do nothing.
Here in Gaza the situation is getting worse quickly. Sometimes I wonder what the guilt is that I did to tell all about the suffering.
I did not choose to be born here. Nobody chose to be born here. Why do we have to suffer all this?
We have not done anything wrong here. The circumstances are totally inhumane.
Here there is no electricity, no cure, no medicine. The water hardly reaches the houses.
We do not want to go on a trip or live in luxury. We are only asking to be able to live a normal life.
Yes, we just want to live life like any other person. To bring you closer to the picture here:
I am a student who graduated this year from high school and got an average of 91.3%
I can not complete my education like everybody else.
Nothing is worse than seeing your dreams come before you and then loose the way. Asking then why or how or what for? There is no answer. I become completely lost.
This is about young people’s dreams and their ambitions.
Let me tell you how you can live with 4 hours of electricity, no medicine or no shelter.
Or did I tell you about men crying every day?
Because he leaves the house at 8 am and returns at 9 pm.
In the end he finds no food to eat for his child.
Humanity is not a word repeated at dinner time or in a family meeting.
Humanity is to cry for solidarity with people you do not know anything about more then that they are human beings.
Humanity can do something for young people whose dreams are shattered. The eyes are on them or a father who is weeping because he can not find food for his children. They did not commit any sin.
Humanity is not a slogan that resonates only in meetings.
It is higher than that.
It is in the heart before it is on the tongue.
At the end,
I want to thank everyone who contributed to sending these boats and devices.
You truly represent humanity, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you ! Yeah, you are the one who gave me your time to read.
Thank you .
Our human gathering.
