Not having a goal but being a goal
Fundraising by Ryan
Shortly after I arrived in Palestine, a boy from the village of At-Tuwani asked me what was the biggest difference between my world and his, which I was just beginning to learn about. The question rumbled in my head for days. Sure, the differences are many: manners, customs, relationships with people. They are visible to everyone's eyes, but there is more, right from the start you can feel a different feeling here.
After much reflection, I came to the conclusion that the different element is that everyone is part of a larger, higher goal, no one HAS a personal goal: everyone IS the same goal .
In my world, to achieve something you have to steal it from someone else; here you have to join with others to achieve it. Every small gesture becomes big, takes on dignity, when supported by that of everyone else.
A little help to the Palestinian people makes a difference. Thank you.
