My brother and I plan to travel with our parents to Israel next year. We had hoped to go to Egypt as well. Now we are wondering... Will we feel safe? Will our American passports, our Jewish names elicit "Welcomes," or "Go Aways, or...? It seems overwhelming to think about. What can we do about it? We're just kids. Where do we begin? SEEDS OF PEACE is an organization that brings kids like us, Jews and Muslims, Israelis and Palestinians, kids born into century old conflicts we never asked for but cannot escape - together at a summer camp in Maine to live and eat together, swim and play together, confront and debate together, and maybe find a little understanding, hope, or possiby even friendship...together. It seems like a good place to start. Let it begin with us. CLICK ON THE FORWARD ARROW AT THE SIDE OF THIS PICTURE of us to see a video about this amazing organization!
