    I have been reading Naomi Shihab Nye since high school She has been writing of the plight and the humanity of Palestinians in all of her work while this collection suarely rests with the world's largest open air prison Nye also points out that Palestinians are also Semites so being pro justice for Palestinians is never an anti Semitic position no matter what anybody says These poems are simple but expressive of pain oppression joy and hopeFrom NetanyahuWhat does it mean when one person thinks others deserve nothing? What is that called?From My WisdomWhen people have a lotthey want When people have nothingthey will happily share itSome people saynever getting your waybuilds characterBy now our character must bedeep and wide as a continentAfrica Australiagiant cascade of starsspilling over our huge nightFrom Better VisionPeople think of us differentlyWe may be in prison but we still love beautyWe may be oppressed but we are smartWe may think we don't need glasses but the big Efor euality has been lying on its backfor a long time nowkicking its legs in the air like an animalthat needs help to get up

    This collection of poems was inspired by the work of Janna Ayyad a young Palestinian girl who began filming and sharing the struggles of her people when she was only 7 Janna is representing the place Nye's family came from and lost many years agoFrom 38 Billionsometimes I wonder what38 billion dollars could buy instead of weapons aimedagainst us and this is what comes to mindEggs Pencils Undershirts of very soft cottonRibbons Radios Shining flashlightsHandmade clay plates Chocolates Really soft pillowsBaskets Bracelets Running shoesNye places the stark reality of war sharply into view and it is impossible not to reflect on our complicity

    Almost a 4?I have always loved Nye's poetry I think what makes me hesitate to give this a solid 4 is it didn't have the same poetic uality that her earlier works did There was an incredible message throughout these poems though and that alone deserves a 5
