For the past 50+ years the Israelis and the Palestinians have been at odds, warring constantly over dispute land, land they both claim for themselves and their ancestors as a right. Thousands have died, more have been forced to live in fear, forced out of their homes, forced in subjugation. While most of our country, and the world, have failed to take notice, these two peoples have suffered terrible losses, both in pride and in life. Millions of Palestinians have been forced to live as refugees in what used to be their land. In order to work towards peace and reconciliation in any conflict, we must first understand it. A story must be told and heard. This is one side of the story, that of the displaced.
