Mahmoud Darwish, Palestinian poet, Nakba Day, May 2001 - "Today is our day of remembrance. We needn't look at what happened yesterday to recall the chronology of crimes perpetrated. The present is a living reminder of the catastrophe, the nakba, the tragic events of which are still unfolding. We are still cut by the elements of that tragedy here and now. We are still resisting the expression of its effects, here and now, on the soil of our homeland."
