Choosing a Side

I'm sad that it's so difficult to talk about what's happening between Israel and Palestine right now without bending into a verbal pretzel to not seem insensitive to those hurt on either side or to be taking sides or not on the "right" side. I'd like to be on the "side" of peace and mutual respect, nonviolence and ending oppression. I'm on the "side" of people not being killed, mutilated, bombed, having infrastructure destroyed or losing their families. I'm ultimately on the side of the entire human race growing up.

I am heartened that there are people in both Israel and Palestine who feel the same way and work towards peace, even if they don't always prevail.
