Gaza in the dark and sewage

Could you live without electricity for 16 hours a day?… cook the family meals, heat the baby’s bottle, study for school exams, skype with relatives abroad, entertain bored children…

Could you walk through sewage to your front door?… sweep sewage from your kitchen each day, watch your children swim in sewage at the beach, carry your grandfather down a sewage-strewn street to the doctor…

These things, and more, Palestinians in the occupied Gaza Strip face each day… now… right this minute.  Are we in the twenty-first century?  Surely there is something wrong with this picture?
