The Dove told her husband when she first started this blog that all hell could break loose. She's seen other bloggers, mostly women, begin blogs devoted to sunshine and flowers, and then the heavens split open and Jove or whomever sears their hair with lightening bolts.
Seems that the situation in Palestine only gets worse. Perhaps by trying to find signs of hope every day, the Dove is forced to look around more, and thus sees more trouble?
The vision of the solution is still the only way out. Whether it's the Geneva Accord, or the new idea about a one state, democratic solution, only a vision of what peace would look like can lead us out of this dark place.
Groups doing the painful work on the ground of building for the future are the best sign of hope we have. Rebuilding Homes is one such group (nepotism alert - my mom works for them).
Aron Trauring's Israel Peace Weblog has a section called Solutions (look on the right side, a third of the way down the page). I'm going to go there right now and read a little.
The point of this blog is to focus on a vision for peace. Concentrating on the solution is the only way to bring that about.
