    It's a pleasure to have you as part of our community. You might be interested in connecting with three inspiring women from Palestine to have a dialogue and share ideas about bringing peace to this region.

    Fawzia and Khulud, both of whom wrote moving pieces on the topic of "Land" in our recent call for submissions. http://www.worldpulse.com/node/15229
