Death and Hope

We are living through a time of great chaos, confusion, rage and fear. Whether directly involved with persons in Gaza, Israel or Palestine, we are all impacted. The world is spinning badly out of control. We are participants and witnesses, whether we like it or not.

Real people are being killed and injured. Real people are being held hostage. Here are two glimpses of those people. But there are organisations and individuals who manage to find one another and work towards a just peace.

On Oct. 14, 2023, Yousef Maher Dawas was killed, along with several family members, by a missile strike on his family’s home in the northern town of Beit Lahia. Yousef was studying to be a psychoanalyst. He was a gifted writer and a beloved colleague.

A woman places a flower as she mourns Danielle, 25, and Noam 26, an Israeli couple killed as they attended a festival.

They are buried next to each other in Kiryat Tivon, Israel.
