Can you imagine fleeing your home in terror?

Can you imagine fleeing your home in terror and consoling your children, who have fled in their bare feet, that it is just for a short while, soon you will return home.

Can you imagine finding yourself in a refugee camp with nothing.

Can you imagine your son shot on the "border" by the same forces that occupy your land until this day? Can you imagine they dare call your son "terrorist".

Can you imagine dreaming all these years later of the olive groves you planted as a child?

Can you imagine 65 years later, as you lay dying, handing the key to your home to your grand children and telling them, "One day you will return home. One day you will be free!"
