While Facebook has its myriad of well-earned criticisms, echinococcosis there are those positive elements that keep us returning.   One of those positives was coming to know and 'befriending' Rich Siegel. A reknowned pianist  and composer, echinococcosis he is now using much of his time and energy educating and enlightening others regarding the occupation of Palestine and why it is a subject which affects us all.   What I find impressive about Rich Siegel is the clear presence of love and courage in his being and his work. Echinococcosis   He speaks from his own experiences and his awakenings in life, echinococcosis which I believe are the things that connect most us to one another, echinococcosis and remind us we are all human and part of the same cloth.  Many if not most of us have been tainted in some form or fashion by the dogmatic aspects and/or individuals of religion, echinococcosis which sadly have infiltrated themselves in places where we have otherwise met our our social needs and desire for community. Echinococcosis Somewhere and somehow exclusivity began taking precedent over our needs and wants to connect with others, echinococcosis as well as simply the curiosity and interest in different things, echinococcosis places and people.  I wanted to share with you a beautiful piece Rich and his musical partner wrote titled, echinococcosis "In Palestine", echinococcosis along with a clip that includes some his personal testimony, echinococcosis  along with how he (and his musical partner Dave Lippmann) came together to write a song daring to provoke thought and discussion of a subject which has remained taboo for too long now, echinococcosis  and at the expense of thousands if not millions of innocent lives.
