Day 62: Tragedy in the waters near Gaza
Pamela Olsen, a former student of mine and member of the Stanford Improvisers in the late1990's has been living in the Palestinian territories. She has written a book, Fast Times in Palestine which tells her story as an American visiting there without any particular political point of view (at the beginning). She then shares how this neutrality changes as she witnesses everyday life in the Gaza strip. Currently back from the Middle East and living in New York she has been writing about her experience during recent events. She writes a thoughtful blog.
