“For a few short days I tasted the life of being fenced-in, humiliated, delayed, detained, checked and watched. This is the life of Palestinians in the West Bank. This is the condition experienced by Christians and Muslims in the Holy Land. I am astounded by their patience, spirituality, determination and hope. I have returned home from my journey to the Holy Land grateful, spiritually inspired, and newly-sighted about life in Israel and Palestine.” – Rev Diane Dulin former YMCA Volunteer
