Today, I received an email from a professor/colleague at the University of Gaza. I thought his words were beautiful. He wrote:
"I am pleased to introduce to you, and initiate any type of cooperation that may contribute to build the bridge of understating among nations on the pathway of achieving peace in the world, especially in this bleeding region which I believe deserve peace, justice, welfare, and equity among all nations and religions of it as the cradle of civilizations.
Happy Christmas, and nice holiday, for you and all of the American people and the Christian world."
Thank you, professor. After the events of last Friday, I think we all needed a dose of your goodwill.
