As you’ve all read and/or watched, people in Gaza have suffered 2 days of bombings by Israeli forces.  The death toll stands at nearly 300 while several hundred more are injured, many severely.

It is difficult to make sense of the destruction of life and property and even more difficult, the callous disregard of world leadership.  It is disheartening to read news sites such as the BBC and the witness how people flippantly justify the carnage.

While I’m not certain that letter-writing will have an influence in easing their present suffering, I would urge you to write to your local member of parliament or equivalent.  And to donate funds to any non-profit organization you trust to provide medical and supply aid to those injured and displaced.
