"Our home was shaking like an earthquake, and our windows broke and shattered everywhere, and I felt the missiles inside our home. It was very scary. Of course serious damages happened to all surrounding buildings in the area."

"The first time, the Israeli F16 military jets hit Palestine stadium, which is located in the neighborhood next to my neighborhood, with 4 huge missiles, and caused some damages to my home as well." 

"I heard the huge explosions and saw the flames and it was very terrifying. We see and feel death very close with each bombing. Israel is bombing everywhere in Gaza all the time by air, sea and land." 

"Nowhere to hide".Nowhere is safe".We don't have shelters. We just stay at home so all of us can die at once if a missile would strike our home." 

"We are still recovering from the trauma of (Cast Lead). How will we recover from this?" 

"This is insane".How much is too much?".I hope this madness will stop as quickly as possible."

On June 14, 1956, Jack Kennedy gave Harvard's commencement address. Politicians don't speak that way today. His entire talk included scholarly references and quotes. It was an impressive example for young graduates.

He reminded the audience that political leaders once "traded in the free commerce of ideas." They achieved important results at home and abroad.

The link between US scholars and politicians lasted over a century, he added.

Where freedom is endangered, he said, politicians and intellectuals "should be natural allies, working more closely together for the common cause against the common enemy."

They must decide whether to be "an anvil or a hammer." He concluded saying "if more politicians knew poetry and more poets knew politics, I am convinced the world would be a little better place in which to live on this commencement day of 1956."

He was assassinated perhaps for believing war isn't the answer. He'd deplore what's going on now. He was chastened by the failed Bay of Pigs invasion. He fired CIA director Allen Dulles and his assistant General Charles Cabell. 

He once said he wanted to "to splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds." That alone was reason to kill him.

He opposed America's growing Southeast Asian involvement. After initially sending troops and advisors, he changed course. He refused to send more and wanted ones there gradually withdrawn.
