Only fear builds walls

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 21, 2008, 11:26 AM


Thought it would be a good idea to let people know that I have returned from Israel/Palestine. Despite what I knew already, there has been a lot I have learned from listening to those directly involved and affected by what is happening. Soon I will talk about the occupation of Palestinian land; the 750km of wall built so far; the affects this has on the people; and those who are trying to make a difference for the better. Of greater interest to you in the short term will be the photographs I would like to share with you from the trip. I saw two pieces of the politically evocative grafetti artwork by Banksy in Bethlehem for instance. These will come in time. I have work to do and my new home to sort out. I feel emotionally drained and I feel even more strongly now for the plight of the Palestinian people.

Too much politics; too much religion; too little love.

Hi there! Sorry to bother you, but you're one of my watchers and I wanted to give you a heads up that I'm leaving DeviantART completely. I had switched accounts a year ago, so I wasn't using this one anymore. If you'd like to continue keeping up with my work, you can check out the links below. If not, that's okay too. Thank you for your support up to this point, it means a great deal to me! :heart:
