We are using this anonymous outlet to tell you who we are. We have lived through the Second Intifada, Operation Cast lead, Operation Protective edge and every other series of military attacks carried out by the Israeli military on Palestinians. Some of us have seen Gaza under blockade, not from a settlement observatory, but on the ground, between the rubble. We have seen buildings that we once celebrated birthdays in, bombed to the ground. We have experienced trauma first-hand and through our parents. We go through our days as if our PTSD and anxiety have no effect on us. We have suffered through apartheid, occupation, and war, and most often must stay silent about our experience because this campus has created a climate of fear. We have to "come out as Palestinian," and doing so is to put ourselves at risk.
