It would be impossible to describe the overwhelming range of emotions I have experienced during my time here, from the humbling sensations of teaching English to the children of Askar and their eagerness to learn, to the genuine warmth of the local volunteers.
This is why it was so hard to witness the perpetual, unjust treatment of the Palestinian people. This final point has made me determined in my resolve. For this is not the end but the beginning. It is the beginning of a new chapter in my life. For when I return home I want to shout from the tallest tower to every neighbor and every stranger the plight of the Palestinian people. Hopefully we can look for a brighter future, together.
