Palestinian-Israeli Relations Builder

Just realized I never posted on an event I have covered twice now for Seeking Common Ground. Have worked with this non-profit group 2 summers running. Entitled Building Bridges For Peace, this group brings together Israeli, Palestinian and American teens for 10 days up in the Colorado mountains to find common ground in their lives. The goal is to help build understanding while overcoming tremendous cultural and religious differences. Often they show up with bitter prejudices and leave as the closest of friends. It's a cool thing.
