Threads of Peace: Our Stories ​

Richard’s Threads

“Born into jewish London life. Raised in Israel. My father was in 2 wars which deeply affected his life and mine. He has lived his whole life since with terrible PTSD.

My daughter served as a combat medic in a tank unit leaving her to absorb the trauma of war and now my son Ben, my beautiful boy is currently in training as part of an elite unit of combat engineers in the IDF and is moments away from being deployed in a war that breaks my heart. I have lived the subtle and the violent reverberations of a non stop cycle of war and now its my son on the front line.  No war ever brought me peace.

When my children were born I whispered to each that I would always protect them. And I am compelled to honour that promise now.

A Peace Weaving vision is born. This coming week, women from Israel walking side by side with Palestinian women alongside women from England, Spain and other countries around the world. With one heart they will honour the death and celebrate the life and show that  humanity is above nation.  This is a physical event and an online event allowing people all over the world to tune in and weave together.

May all beings be at peace”
