For the past few days, Palestine has been under attack. Israel is attacking with missiles and bombs destroying many Palestinian homes, killing harmless men, women, and children in the process.
While the entire world watches as #GazaUnderAttack trends, people’s lives are being taken away and children, mothers, and entire families are paying the price.
This video of a 10-year-old girl whose house got demolished in an attack is the reality of the citizens of Palestine. While 10-year-olds should be carefree and enjoying their childhood, children in Gaza are having to watch their family die, are living in constant fear, and are becoming homeless every day.
This video is the reality we need to face showing the heart-breaking conditions of being a child in Palestine. How is this fair? This is not a ‘conflict’. This is not ‘war’. This is a massacre and we cannot stay quiet as children and innocent lives are being raised in this unfairness.
Sharing the story of Palestinians, highlighting the unfairness, spreading the truth about what’s happening is our responsibility. Especially when the Israelis are seen celebrating for killing innocent lives.
Now is not the time to be silent, now is the time to speak up, and use social media to our advantage, and help make the Palestinians voices heard.
