And if you should come to inherit your homeland; Do not approach it as an enemy. But come to the inhabitants in the spirit of peace. Not by malice, by transgression nor by animosity will you build the homeland of your forefathers, but by love and mercy, by righteousness and faith. And you will love the inhabitants of the land for they are your brothers of your own flesh, and you will not disregard them.

 —Rabbi Binyamin pseudonym of Yehoshoua Radler-Feldmann,active in the Brit Shalom association, foundedin 1925 to foster Jewish-Arab relations.(English translation from Hebrew:Elaine varady)

Ah, I apologize. I’ve been so busy this year with school and whatnot… but this is such a great thing. To end my busy school day with something so stunningly beautiful as well as inspiring. It’s so true: Who’s land is anyway? It’s all of ours and we should love each other–not for simply that… but we are so alike and yet so different. Which makes every one of us beautiful despite our odd quirks. Why not love one another for the simple things such as our own, wondrous existence, our lives together, and how we all create one big masterpiece together whether we know it or not.

Beautiful piece… one that is chillingly true and simple… and so beautiful. (: One that makes you stand in awe. And think. Really think.
Thank you so much for this!

Love the words in English and Hebrew, what a great mix! The tent looks lonely, but it still looks nice. At the top right it looks very scribbly, which adds to the charm of it all!
This is a very… charming post and art piece.
Love you,
Your daughter,

I doubt if some people ever read this paragraph to live by it…
Beautifully made.

I love how you take simple fonts and make them almost like art itself. I love how you use pictures to complete the whole piece.
