I pray that when this little girl grows up, and sees this picture (I sent it to her parents), that her parents give her a history lesson on Palestine. I pray that it will only serve as a reminder of how inhumane humans can be. I pray that they look back on this day and tell her that she was a part of a beautiful movement, when the world finally woke up to the truth. I pray that this will be nothing but a history lesson, on how terrible things used to be but no longer are.

He compared her to the moon.
She compared him to the sun.
But they could never touch,
So the stars and clouds whispered,
Passing along their messages
And the ocean was their witness
An affair across the sky (via 9940km)
