Visit to Palestinian Refugee Camps


I had the opportunity to visit 6 Palestinian refugee camps & Haifa Hospital in Lebanon in September as well as to witness the destructions brought about by the war.
What struck me is how positive the Palestinians are in the face of devastation. Although their homes were taken away, their orange and olive trees were uprooted, their families killed... they smiled and said, "We are not afraid."
Like them too, I will say this, "You may uproot my mango tree, but you will never uproot my spirit."
