"The Wall of Unity"

If you had an opportunity to allow people in the Middle East (Israel, West Bank, Gaza) to envision a way to bring an end to the cycle of violence that has paralyzed this area of the world, would you take it?

The "Wall of Unity" is such an opportunity. Unbound by the shackles of politics, cognizant of the area's rich and turbulent history, but not enslaved by it, "The Wall of Unity" is a project for individuals and organizations committed to peace in the Middle East to build a future of peace.

In summary "The Wall of Unity" is a wall of remembrance, patterned loosely after the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Washington, D.C., that would be inscribed with the names of all who have died in the conflict in this area of the world, since January 1, 1984. However, unlike the Vietnam Memorial, this wall would be constructed and built while the conflict continues, and would be designed, with the consensus of all participating groups -- Israelis and Palestinians -- to be large enough to accommodate the name of the last person to die in the conflict.

Without knowing how or why it will end, the project gives all involved a way of expressing their desire that it end some day.

Any individual or organization who is interested in saying "yes" to this, is asked to to be identified as endorsing the project with their name(s) and their intention to bring the project to realization.

All individuals and organizations who say "yes" will then come together into a larger group, which will then (1) create the design and location for "The Wall of Unity" and (2) raise funds for the project.
