Al-Nakba is a people who have been in a state of revolt since 1948. These 64 years bring me images and memories of my grandparents and all the Palestinians who had to leave their land by force, with eyes full of tears and hearts full of anger, yet with a deep sense of optimism about returning! Groups of Palestinians left carrying nothing but the keys to their homes. Al-Nakba is a very pessimistic word, but this doesn’t mean that Palestinians will lose their hope of returning to their original lands. My grandmother passed away with much hope that the next generation would change May 15 from Nakba Day to Victory Day!
