The Beginning of a Journey to Solidarity

Yesterday, while getting ready for bed my peace team mate asked "Phoenix,
why do you want to go to Palestine?"  I thought for a moment before answering, but it wasn't really anything I had to think about. My answer,  I see Detroit in Palestine.  As a black-woman from Detroit,  I know what it feels like to be pushed out of space and then erased from that space as if I never existed, to have my voice silenced and my mind beaten.  I go to stand in solidarity and my journey begins here.
