Homemade Hummus Social Chef 600x429 Hummus with Feta Cheese

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been conscious of the struggle for peace in the Middle East. As a kid seeing it, I never really understood what was going on. As I got older, I heard about peace talks, but they only seemed to result in more violence followed by another round of peace talks. Now it’s become such a constant thing that it seems as if war is a foregone conclusion. Have people just accepted war as the status quo?

Here’s an example: September 13, 1993 — I was 13 at the time, and I stayed up late to watch the premier of Late Night with Conan O’Brien. In his monologue, he joked that someone said to him that “the day you get your own show is the day their will be peace in the Middle East.” I’m in my thirties now; Conan has had two more shows since then and yet the conflict continues (though I’m still not sure why).

I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately, wondering when the people of that region are going to take a stand. I don’t mean they should to take a stand for who’s right and who’s wrong — they’ve got that covered — but rather a stand for peace.

The Seeds of Peace organization believes in just that. The organization works with all youth in conflict, showing them that peace is possible.

I’ve learned that if you try to make someone wrong that means that they lose and no one ever wants to lose. When you choose peace, it’s neither making someone wrong
or right, it’s just what you are taking a stand for. Imagine a young child learning from an early age that it can happen.

Surely the people of the region that gave us hummus know a good thing when they see it… and peace is the ultimate good thing. Join the Seeds of Peace in it’s Hummus Taste Off on April 7th 2011!
