Yesterday morning I received a copy of Kenneth Ring’s new book Letters From Palestine in the mail. It is one of the few books that I literally could not put down until I finished reading it. The format, the content, everything about it made it the perfect vehicle by which an entire nation, rendered voiceless, speaks out in a loud voice to the entire world.
Each letter is accompanied with a photo of the writer, making them seem like a personal letter to the reader. The letters themselves are written by Palestinians living under occupation in the West Bank, in Gaza and throughout the diaspora. Each one filled with hope and inspiration.
