Do Unto Others focuses on the Middle East, (nonviolent) social movements, and how I make sense of my place in the world. I'm currently based in Cairo, Egypt doing peacebuilding and community development.

Quote of the Week: Vol 16

I was sitting out in the hills with a shepherd, an old man who looks even older because of the sun and the occupation, when I offered him some sunflower seeds.

He looked up at me, hesitated, and replied, "No thank you, I don't have any teeth."

Touche, Mr. Shepherd Man. Maybe one day after this occupation and world poverty sort themselves out, you could get some needed dental care.
