Saturday February 2
I don’t have the words to describe how I feel right now. I don’t even think I really know what I feel. The performance last night was everything I could have wished for. The audience was full of people that I didn’t even know, but who had heard about the show and it’s message and came. For 1 hour and half I was telling Rachel’s story and people were listening. They were laughing with me, crying with me, and were feeling the suffering of every person and family I described over in Israel/Palestine. I am speechless by the performance and the emotions it has brought me. I probably haven’t allowed myself enough time to process this whole project yet because I think I am still in shock. I actually went through with this one-woman show on a broken foot to talk about peace and people actually showed up and listened to what I had to say. And even more than that, people were moved.
I have the best roommates anyone could ask for. Instead of buying me flowers, my roommates got together and collect $110 between all of them and donated it to the CPT (Christian Peacemaker Team) in Hebron, Palestine. I cried, I was so impressed with their thoughtfulness in thinking of a gift so meaningful to me. I love them all for helping me walk this peaceful journey.
