Our family’s own sojourn living north of Jerusalem, my own seeing with my own eyes what went on between Israelis and Palestinians, the immense tragedy of oppression and disconnection, first took shape when I was a teenager but would continue till now. I continue to see my role as a duty to “talk about it.”
