Success, Carter, Al-Haq and more, by Mazin Qumsiyeh


To laugh often and much

to win the respect of intelligent people

and affection of children; to earn the

appreciation of honest critics and

endure the betrayal of false friends;

to appreciate beauty, to find the best

in others; to leave the world a bit

better, whether by a healthy child

a garden patch or redeemed

social condition; to know even

one life has breathed easier because

you have lived. This is to have


-Ralph Waldo Emerson

reflections about Jimmy Carter and about Al-Haq (a Palestinian brilliant
human rights organization) here https://popular-resistance.
