Press Obama Administration for Gaza Ceasefire

The Israeli military carried out a second night of airstrikes in Gaza July 8. As of Wednesday morning, July 9, at least 29 Palestinians had been killed since the airstrikes began July 7, including seven children under the age of 16. [1] At least two Israelis had been lightly wounded by rocket fire from Gaza, Haaretz reported. [2] The military conflict “showed no signs of abating,” according to a New York Times report on July 9. [3]

Urge President Obama and your representatives in Congress to support vigorous diplomatic efforts to end the violence, by signing our petition at MoveOn:

From the past, we know how this ends. There will be a new ceasefire. The key question is how long it will take, how many people will be killed and injured, how much will be destroyed in the meantime.

The United States can help save both Israeli and Palestinian lives by speaking out urgently in support of a ceasefire, and working vigorously with U.S. allies in the region that have good relations with both sides, such as Egypt and Jordan, to press for a ceasefire. The U.S. can help make the ceasefire last by pressing for an agreement that would permanently lift the blockade of Gaza.

The State Department should also continue to press for an investigation of the beating of U.S. citizen Tarek Abu Khdeir while in Israeli police custody. [4]

Press the Obama Administration to engage vigorously and urgently by signing and sharing our petition.

Thanks for all you do to help rid humanity of the scourge of war,

The administration is trying to promote good governance. However, not all can understand how everything works.

We do everything mundane, ordinary we live each day, ordinary life is not natural!Life is full of Huangran drip and scenery. Black, dark day do not understand the beauty of the night as during the day do not understand; just do not understand the clear warm rain, rain sunny understand sad; like men do not understand a woman's pain, women do not know the man's tired; like Slim never find fat man sad standing on the scales, fat never understand easily be miserable not thin when the wind blew; as handsome Way will never understand "ugly ugly sister brother" greedy "ugly ugly sister brother "never understand the guy Way" tired "the same. Therefore, we should try to understand the life ......We faint recollection of events. Many past is a thin, thin flower, is a consideration, one is Rouchang, one is Xinchou, an old idea. Along the way, how many people open after years of wind, but often ignored behind a prosthetic past, wind it, when suddenly they begin life has turned a season, cold ramiflorous is cool. I like life, sometimes, we walked into a book, concentration on certain words, or into the evening, at sunset night photos in meditation, as in the past into the tender.Along the way, the face Mid-storm, return cloth Mid-ink, and finally into the picturesque past, sitting on a flower, sitting in a plain paper Movies, a Shizuka. Gentle spoke -We live emotion dash. Poor man only once, before we know what a woman loves you, not too poor man could not understand the woman's valuable. Ugly woman only once, before we know what a man will not leave you, not too ugly woman, her love has always been a blur. Abjection life only once, before we know who most care about you, so only after a lackluster stage of life will have a golden light, the light of the others do not understand, only you know. Companionship, not money you follow me. Treasure, not you I was pretty concerned. Time left is not wealth, not beautiful, is love! Life is love, fresh taste of a different kind!Most of life can not be plain sailing. When you walk uphill time, we must bow, which would go steady, otherwise your head will be trouble so many flowers ----'ll kiss you, thorns will cut your foot lands paralyzes you; when when you decline, we must Angtou, so as not to wrestling. Whether walking uphill or downhill, sooner or later we all have to go through the road. Whether we are in that stage, what we need is a quiet a safe. (Read the article Network: who is divided into three hundred fifty-nine like. They divided according to some standard digital money, size, based on some knowledge based on the thickness of some power, some based on family background, some based on the level of location ...... this division, draw endless sad history of mankind! In fact, life is no distinction or distinction, any life has equal value, equality is not a show, it is the life of the most specific of the most vivid manifestation! Equality of life, such as the bright moon-like, so that we see the glory of human nature, leading to our hearts soft.Life is not an article, just wonderful collection does not accept dull. Life is a serial process is unknown, the outcome is unknown, but you will certainly see a lot of hear a lot, the harvest will be more, feeling a lot more!Life is not a dress rehearsal, to have a second chance, it is no longer passed over again. We want to know how to cherish, even a moment, a fragment, do not miss ......Life experiences are beautiful, perfectly beautiful, the defect is also beautiful! Our lives are almost always imperfect by a string to form, because there is not perfect, we need to have pure effort! Our efforts, that is wonderful!It is said that people alive is necessary to have some success, then what is the concept of achievement dare ask of it? Through a battle deprived one million lives? Or like the whirlwind world of wealth they gathered in front of you? Or are you climb the "Everest" top?It is said that people alive, it must be vigorous, that I question what the concept vigorous is it? When you get angry like thunder and lightning, is so vigorous it? Tractor on the road to climb the tremendous noise emitted smoke is vigorous yet? Flash floods disaster everywhere even vigorous cross it? Troublemaker, lawsuit again and again, alerted the "heaven", attracted worldwide attention, and sometimes "news" people, so vigorous positive energy?When we look at these extraordinary stones, you will find these stones in fact, not bright, not "earth-shattering." But even these humble stone, with a thousand years, with a thousand years, the composition of the mountains, the majestic composition, composed of thick, composed of a constant stream of natural landscape.When we look at these extraordinary grass, you will find these grass or weeds to survive, not rivalry, is not inferior. But even these humble grass, form the green earth, formed a wild show, formed a natural smile after passing breeze.So, life is a natural process, there are seasons four seasons with steep ups and downs, there are gentle wave advection of scenery, but also the United States and flora Mountain rocks stone can enjoy it. Not demanding, because the agitation will be demanding, because flash floods will be demanding, exacting because it destroys the ecological balance of natural beauty.We do everything that we live each day, we often remains a "rain wet clean process," the heart ...... Slowly, we find: Because we spend it opened; because there us, the tree will end up with the results; because we, on golden rice bowed; because of us, winter will have a steaming hot pot; because of us, more and more days beaming the ......We do everything mundane, ordinary we live each day, ordinary life is not natural!
