    Shalom, I made aliyah five years ago from Maryland. I just left Tel Aviv, and now I live on the farmlands of the South Sharon region, a beautiful moshav which is just a few kilometers from the Green Line. I frequent the West Bank often. The rolling hills of the Shomron are quite inviting and the situation with the Palestinians is quite tempting to witness first-hand. They live in prisons, ghetto cities. End the Occupation already! On Thursday, I had the privilege of hearing Martin Luther King III (MLK's son) speak in Jaffa. He said that we are G_d's highest creation. "We can and we must do better." We must end these prisons that we have created in the West Bank. I am an English teacher in a high school. I told my students that I hope that Israel will be around for a long time. One of my students corrected me, "Teacher, that it will be around forever." If we want to be a free nation in our land, then we must be moral and we must do better. Toda v'hag sameach:) -Laura
