Live as brave men; and if fortune is adverse, front its blows with brave hearts.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.

Palestine is the cement that holds the Arab world together, or it is the explosive that blows it apart.
