I AM...

March 16, 2017

I am a young Jewish-American girl

I wonder what it's like to live in Israel
I hear the sirens fill the Gaza Strip
I see the women praying separately from their husbands and sons
I want to visit Israel
I am a young Jewish-American girl
I pretend to be strong
I feel everyone seeing through my front
I touch the hands of Israeli teens
I worry about the men and women in the IDF
I cry because of the swastikas on the bathroom stalls
I am a young Jewish-American girl
I understand conflict is not easily resolved
I say that the Jewish people need a piece of land to call home
I dream of swimming in the Dead Sea
I try to explain BDS
I hope for peace between Israel and Palestine
I am a young Jewish-American girl
