When is this going to end

'When is this going to end?' Jason George, Salon
In a land of violence and despair, the Palestinian Youth Association for Leadership and Rights Activation (PYALARA) is giving Palestinian Youth at least one reason to be hopeful about the future. Funded mainly by UNICEF and the International Red Cross, PYALARA provides jobs, a meeting place, peer counseling, a phone hotline, and a newspaper for youth writing. While PYALARA has actually prevented some youth from becoming suicide bombers, others have found help through talking to peers and telling their stories. 'We have no meanings to our lives, says Ahmed Ayysh. 'And before PYALARA I had trouble speaking about my feelings--now I speak with thousands at (the university).'
