“We were 30,000 women from Israel and Palestine with some men and many kids first walking in the desert, then marching through Jerusalem-demanding our governments to bring peace. It is a non-partisan movement (I.e.religious and secular, left center and right). Our group of Middle-East Nurses marched under a banner of ‘Peace is Healthy.’ It was incredible.” ~Miriam Hirschfeld
