We’d like to start 2016 by sharing some of the moving personal stories of the members of the Parents Circle. Each month we’ll showcase another Israeli and Palestinian who have lost a loved one to the conflict and chosen the path of reconciliation rather than revenge. In this month’s newsletter, we showcase Arab and Yigal.

What makes you think that the tears on a bereaved, Palestinian mother’s pillow are a different color than those of a grieving Israeli mother? What makes you think that there cannot be any mother whose suffering is greater than an Israeli mother’s?
All mothers who have lost their beloved children share the same pain and no matter what image or label the media, politicians or the powers that be assign, their lives will never be the same.
