Palestine: Living in Gaza

Imaan says that by now she already spent close to four months in Gaza. There has been many struggles, however she have come to realize that the Gazans do love their Gaza. They even sometimes refer to it as “sweet Gaza”. Many people live satisfying lives there. Even their lives has over the months developed a certain “sweetness” to it. One of the things that really has surprised her is that Gazans try to live normal lives in spite of the difficulties, they focus on the positive things rather than the negative. She says, we've had sleepless nights because of bombs being dropped at Gaza, but they still go to work in the morning.
