"My grandmother remembers the Arab world much differently than people view it today. She remembers a place known for its music, innovation, and intellectual abilities. I may be naive, but I want to help work toward unity in the Arab world— both between our countries and within our countries— so that we can get back to that place again." (Amman, Jordan)

As I prepare to leave for Amman in 6 days, these recent HONY posts from all around Jordan give me hope that as more eyes turn toward the Middle East because of the violence abroad, more will see the inspiring people who want to repair what’s been torn apart. 
I hope that by going to Amman I will open the eyes of at least my family and friends to their world, and how it’s really not so different if you look closely. 

Peace and love!

Check out HONY folks, for real.
