It's been three hours since I decided to go to bed, and until now I can't sleep. It's very strange how thoughts can stop us from doing something and at the same time how other thoughts can motivate us to do a lot. When I decided to leave Palestine I made a pledge, mostly as what Martin Luther King said in his famous speech (I have a dream); "As we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back." And somethings are easier said than done! Holding on to the vision and sticking to the pledge is the character of very few in this time. those of Palestinians with a vision and a pledge have always lived strangers even among other Palestinians, if you stop thinking of the whole thing for just one minute, or if you decide that you are tired and you want to look back only for a moment; you would slip away from the circle of those who can make a change, here; there is no time to make a mistake and those who can't sleep at night should wake up and do something. Even if news sites are blocked and even if some people see you as the alien from Mars you can always find a way to do something. Struggling every day to hold on to the vision is walking with your head high because this vision is what will light your way to success and achievement and therefore a better future and a better change if made for the sake of helping. Even if you are one, be the example to follow and others shall follow. We are the change that we've been waiting for, if we keep wishing that one day "someone" would come and save us, then we create fog around our vision and around our abilities of being the ones who save others along with ourselves.
Writing the above makes me think of what I should do next, I hope that reading it makes you at least think that you can make a difference, that you can help not only spread the word about Palestine but also be part of the word, living it and changing it to a better one!
