Storyteller Legacies: Reckoning with Catastrophe
My deepest condolences to those of you who are grieving family and friends brutally killed when Hamas murdered 1400 civilians in Israel and took over 200 people hostage. I am sending love to those of you grieving family and friends brutally murdered by the State of Israel’s horrific bombing campaign and settler rampage in Gaza and the West Bank. Over 11,000 Palestinian civilians have been killed, more than 4000 of them children who have no blankets, no food, no water, no beds, no parents, no safety.
There is little comfort one can offer in the face of such extreme anguish except to demonstrate loving solidarity in ways that prevent and put an end to more violence.
