And a word from Jim Harrington...
Our group is led by a wonderful gentleman named Bob Carter. He 82 years young and has the energy of a young philly. He's the one wearing a straw hat.
The gentleman standing next to him is an Palestinian whose mother had to leave Palestine sixty-six years ago when she was only thirteen years old. She has lived in Jordan ever since the Nakba of 1948.
Her health isn't very good now and her wish is that she can return to the village of her childhood. Of course the Israeli's won't ever allow this to happen.
There is a very sizeable Palestinian community here in Houston and we hope that they join with us once in awhile on the bridge, but lately that hasn't been the case.
Inshalla, maybe things will begin to pick up.
