/Hope or hopelessness, trapped or free, emigrating or remaining in Gaza, 
ignored or noticed by the world, Israel held accountable for possible 
war crimes (along with militant political elements in Gaza) or will the 
impunity continue?—these questions constitute the main themes of my new 
photographic presentation about Gaza. Based on my work photographing and 
teaching photography for one month in Gaza during the summer of 2009, my 
4th trip to that sorely afflicted region, I portray how conditions have 
deteriorated. Hope for many has disappeared. People, especially those 
young or moderate, have no voice and often attempt to leave, only a few 
successfully. While others remain, like the steadfast—/sumud/ is the 
Arabic word—Dr. Mona Al Farra and others I profile in my latest show./

I've attached a flyer. Please spread the word and attend.

"Deep within us all there is an amazing inner sanctuary of the soul, a 
holy place, a Divine Center, a speaking Voice, to which we may 
continually return. Eternity is at our hearts, pressing upon our 
time-torn lives, warming us with intimations of an astounding destiny, 
calling us home unto Itself. Yielding to these persuasions, gladly 
committing ourselves in body and soul, utterly and completely, to the 
Light Within, is the beginning of true life."

—Thomas Kelly
