From Afghanistani children to Gaza and the Freedom Flotilla #2: "Stay together!"

Excerpt from “Staying Human: Preparing to Sail to Gaza,” by Kathy Kelly, with video. Made me cry. Thanks to commondreams.org. And see previous post.

The slogan of our flotilla is “Stay Human.” It’s advice that exposure to violence, real or imagined, always tempts us to forget. Young friends I have met in Afghanistan, faced with pervasive everyday precarity I cannot easily imagine, have expressed this idea in a YouTube video which utterly takes my breath away: They ask Gazan youth to hold on to hope and to the capacity for childlike joy: “To friends in Gaza: don’t stay angry for too long, Stay together, and love from us in Afghanistan!”
