The Five Stages of Grief

The infographic Five Stages of Grief attempts to speak directly to the American people, communicating shared experiences of grief while contrasting stages of healing and recovery. The people of New York City mourned and memorialized their losses after 9/11, but their counterparts in Gaza are not allowed to recover. They have had little respite from Israel’s repeated military operations, nor from its ongoing blockade on the territory. International efforts are currently focused on ending Israel’s latest incursion. This is vital but insufficient. For the people of Gaza, especially the more 40% who are under 14 years old and have grown up traumatized by violence, they need more than just a ceasefire. This time a resolution is needed that will allow them to heal.
