In October 2000, twelve unarmed Palestinian-Israelis were killed by Israeli security forces. One was a seventeen year old boy named Aseel Asleh. Aseel was shot point blank in the neck by Israeli police at a demonstration. Aseel had been a leading participant in the Seeds of Peace coexistence program. He was wearing his Seeds of Peace t-shirt when he was killed, and was buried in it. Aseel left behind an essay called 'Peaceful Thoughts.' In 'Peaceful Thoughts,' Aseel explored complex questions about remembrance and forgiveness in the face of atrocities. 22 people from around the world brought the beauty of 18 different languages to Aseel's words, renewing the questions he pondered and remembering the youthful idealism of a life cut tragically, and needlessly, short.
