A thousand candle for a thousand martyr

Ever since the genocide started in Gaza almost three weeks ago, hundreds of civilians are dying every day. Yes, we’re counting, and they’ve reached 1390 last time I checked today. Almost 1400 martyrs and around 8000 injured. I don’t know about you, but this number torments me. These aren’t just numbers, these are souls of people, of individuals, who fought for years for their freedom, and what do they get? called terrorists and massacred.

Last night in Nazareth, to commemorate the souls of all the martyrs in Gaza,  we lit candles and put them in bags that carry the name of each martyr. Each one of us held one bag and stood across the street by Mary’s Well.  Because each martyr has a name, a soul, a story, childhood and beloved ones.

I’m proud of everyone who participated yesterday.
