I was just about to sleep yesterday when my sister changed the channel to Aljazeera and I was absolutely glued. I saw a couple of Palestinian flags raised, I immediatley thought it was a story about the Israeli occupation. I was wrong.
This story was about guts and glory. It moved me. This story reminded me why we all need to keep writing and sharing our stories. Stories make us relevant, stories show the world we are more than a bunch of stereotypes, stories make us powerful. And this story sure did show how amazing Palestine is dispite the political mess that exists between it and and Israel.
Here is a promo to the amazing documentary I watched yesterday evening: Speed Sisters.
