I feel angry at the tyranny of injustice and darkness on our lives. I feel angry at the lack of hope. I feel angry because the value of human life has become zero. Decided by a distressed or terrified soldier at a checkpoint. I feel angry that most of the peoples of the earth enjoy freedom and my people are occupied and enslaved. I get angry when my life or death is decided by an extremist and spiteful. I feel angry at the spread of racism and hatred. I am angry that I am being targeted because of my national and religious affiliation. I don't hate people but I feel let down. I hope that the humanitarian principles of freedom, justice and sympathy will prevail throughout my country, a freedom that does not differentiate between a person and a person because of their national, religious or sexual affiliation. —B.S.
