From Palestine To Canada

Anas’s Speech

Hi, salaam alaykom everybody. My name is Anas, I’m from Palestine. I came to Canada on June 5th, 2006.
When I was in Palestine, one day my friend told me: “Come with me to write on the wall about Israeli soldiers. But I refused because I didn’t think it was a good idea. I remember when the President of Palestine came to my city. It was a wonderful time because he was seriously looking for peace. One day I asked my friend: “ Why do you hate Israeli people?” He said because they come to our country every night and shoot everywhere. And then I said to him: if we think like that, we can never make peace around the world. Also, even though peace only has five letters, it has huge meaning. We can share together, we can help each other, we can love each other, and we can make friends with each other.

By Anas, 13.
