The UN says nearly 22 *million* people are in desperate need of emergency aid in #YEMEN – nearly all of them children. Unimaginable suffering that barely registers on the agenda of world governments

48 years ago today, these student protestors were shot and killed at Kent State University. They were protesting senseless war. They were advocates for peace . pic.twitter.com/UyfdLopenv

I am a volunteer high school civics teacher. I played this video for my class this week and promised to award 5 points on the final grade to the student who could detect a fact that most interested me. Ahed Tamimi is trying to push the Israeli soldiers out of the curtilage of her home. You can see the family members holding hands to form a barrier across the end of their driveway between the ends of the wall defining their property boundary. One of my students earned the 5 points!
I do not propose to take sides in the struggle between the Israelis and the Palestinians in this post. The issue is morally complex in the extreme.
Like most Americans, I love Israel and the Israelis. I also have great empathy for the plight of the Palestinian people, including Ahed Tamimi.
Ahed Tamimi was unjustly, in my opinion, sentenced to 8 months in prison for this incident.
