In March 2009, I travelled to Gaza with an international peace delegation organized by CODEPINK, Women for Peace. Our mission was to witness the aftermath of Operation Cast Lead, Israel's 22-day assault on Gaza and to celebrate International Women's Day with the women and children of Gaza. One of the most disturbing experiences occurred when we visited children's centers and saw their drawings of people being killed and wounded. They showed their homes destroyed, their family's olive trees uprooted, and planes and helicopters dropping bombs and white phosphorus. They drew images of their traumas that no children anywhere should ever have to experience.
