How’s it going? It’s been a while since I’ve updated you here.
Today was quite a different day, since we had our “international day” at school. This year’s topic was about the Middle East, specifically Palestine and their feud with Israel. Several people with Middle Eastern ethnicities came to tell us their stories and experiences, and I’ve got to say it was quite interesting to listen to.
Unfortunately, we only had time for three people, so I didn’t get the chance to listen to everyone. However the stories I heard made me realize how lucky we are to live in a stable society. I also learned a lot more about the conflict around the Gaza Strip between the Israelis and the Palestinians, like the how it all started and why it’s still an ongoing conflict.
