I was walking around the Tel Rumeida Neighborhood in the West Bank, when many young girls started peeking over the walls of their gardens, they came out slowly and were a little shy at first. Shortly, they had lost their shyness and were playing with free hearts while posing for my camera, fooling around and overall having a great time acting silly. Their ability to have fun and smile beautifully even while under an occupation is truly an inspiration; free hearts in a caged world of checkpoints and demeaning restrictions.
In light of how the rolling rebellion in the Middle East is inspiring me right now. I am going to post a bunch of Photos from Palestine.
Here is one of the several children who inspired me. These children live in one of the most contested areas of the West Bank, the Tel Rumeida neighborhood of Hebron. Here, there is a history of settlers enacting violence and racism onto Palestinian residents, even to the children as they walk to school every day.
