    Israel kills Children in Gaza ~ Chicagoan's Protest downtown.

    Today in a humid downtown Chicago American's rallied in support of Palestinian's and the cry for world leaders to speak up against Israel and the killings of children. Hundreds walked in support carrying signs, Palestinian scarves and both the US and Palestine National flags. I asked an American-Bosnian who was there with her cousin and young daughter why she demonstrated today, her words " The world is silent as people are dying.. many children too. Awareness is necessary and that is why its important for people of 'conscience' to raise their voices. Mina went on to say that.. world leaders are not doing enough! We must speak for Palestinians outside of the open-air prison that is their tortured existence under brutal occupation." said
    Mina Blackburn with a passion in her voice that echoed.
    People were from all walks of life at the protest ; Polish, Saudi-an, French, Pakistan, Bosnia, India and British too. All Americans and all asking our world leaders to step-up and stop this brutal and malicious killing of Palestinian's.
