“A riveting letter is making its rounds from Dr. Mads Gilbert, a Norwegian doctor volunteering in Palestine. In it, Dr. Gilbert describes his first-hand account of Israel’s boots on the ground in Gaza – the sounds of F16s, drones and Apache helicopters, “So much made and paid in and by US,” blended with the screams, the smells, the sight of shivers and blood. He pleads, “Mr. Obama – do you have a heart? I invite you – spend one night – just one night – with us in Shifa … I am convinced, 100 percent, it would change history.””

“I have long believed that good teaching is a lot like acting. This summer, I have had the chance to reflect more deeply about those connections, having had the wonderful opportunity to participate in my local children’s theater’s (Ft. Lauderdale Children’s Theater) production of Shrek the Musical, alongside my 10-year-old daughter. Here I share some of my observations about how community-based theater in general and Shrek the Musical, specifically, are wonderful reminders of what peace education should look like.”
