My Peace Not Walls experience has been incredible. I have enjoyed learning from and listening to the stories and perspectives of all the people that I have met on this trip. My group was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to share a meal with the Palestinian family that hosted my group leader during her of service with YAGM. This family welcomed our group as if we were their immediate family members . Throughout the meal we shared stories, food, and even more laughs as our friendship grew. This is one example of the hospitality that I have seen so far in the Holy Land. However, I believe that this level of care for others is common place for many people here. As we continue in our trip, I cannot wait to continue learning more about Palestine and Israel from the people that live here.
