Nursing Home Walled in

In preparation for a Palestine/Israel trip this fall, I viewed a Jerusalem nursing home POV documentary on public television this week. The nursing home was similar to a good USA nursing home, but the striking difference was that the elderly nursing home residents would be completely cut off from their families by the illegal apartheid wall, being constructed near them. The apartheid wall has affected all life in occupied Palestine. The feelings of dismay and resistance of the elderly to being treated with such disregard was evident. I will not visit the nursing home, but I will stand before the illegal apartheid wall, with the hope that soon true peace and justice can come to Palestine/Israel.
