*Wafaa Awajah* *& son*

The slide show concentrates on youth, from childhood to young adult—their
conditions and their struggles. Schiel highlights a family, the Samouni's,
massacred during the Israeli assault of 2008-2009 and how they're
recovering. Also another family, the Awajah's, still living in tents 2 years
after the assault of Operation Cast Lead. How do people endure, what
provides them hope, what responsibility does the international community
have in bringing justice and peace to that sorely afflicted region?

Special feature: preview screening of a new documentary about Gaza thru the
lens of Skip Schiel, with the entire evening's event video-recorded for the
forthcoming movie, *Eyewitness Gaza.*

NOTE TO THOSE OF YOU OUTSIDE THE BOSTON AREA: please consider inviting Skip
Schiel to present this or any of his other slide shows or print exhibitions
about Palestine-Israel at a venue in your region.

*Turn me like a waterwheel turning a millstone.

Plenty of water, a Living River.

Keep me in one place and scatter the love.

Leaf moves in wind, straw drawn toward amber,

all parts of the world are in love,

but they do not tell their secrets. Cows grazing

on a sacramental table, ants whispering in Solomon's ear.

Mountains mumbling an echo. Sky, calm.

If the sun were not in love, he would have no brightness,

the side of the hill no grass on it.

The ocean would come to rest somewhere.*

—"Mystical Poems of Rumi 1" translated by A.J. Arberry
