I believe in a better day, a day of peace, unity and love!

Dear family and friends!

First, I wanted to say thank you to all of you who’ve already supported my peace documentary entitled ‘Broken Wings’ by donating and sharing my crowd funding campaign; and most of all for joining this important cause of transformation, healing, bridging the gap and creating peace and unity; not only between Israeli and Palestinians but the world as a whole.

I have been anticipating to update you all on the progress of my peace documentary and musical project ‘Broken Wings’ and let you know that I’m gearing up to release the soundtrack of the documentary, also entitled ‘Broken Wings.’ I can’t wait to share this powerful and inspiring song with all of you. The single will feature the Palestinian artist and Oud player Naser Musa. I shot the single cover few days ago and the visual will be as powerful as the music and its inspiring message.

13396565_10153740480981985_637650328_oEven before I started this peace documentary/musical project, I had a clear understanding of the essence of peace. Personally, I experienced the consequences of lack of peace. Growing up in a war-torn region, my experience of fears, scars and insecurities is not new. A broken reality, with a broken home and broken dreams. However, this did not put me down. I kept thinking about all the things that give me hope; my escape was writing, singing and visualizing a better future. My dreams kept me alive. I wanted to use my dreams, my gifts and visions in life to regain the sense of security and freedom as a human being, a woman, and an artist and share it out with the whole world. Therefore, through the project, I aspire to touch on complex conflicts that many people before me have documented, aside the Palestinian-Israeli conflict perspective. My passion for humanity coupled with my experience of the violence, fear and hate and the deep search for individual and collective peace drives me towards the mission for peace.

For a fact, the conflict affects all of us, regardless of where we live, our cultural differences, religion or social class. As the tension, violence and terror attacks in Israel and around the world escalate, it’s easy to lose hope in peace, coexistence and bridge building. Nevertheless, as we experience the wave of emotions due to fear, hate, pain, despair and death of the innocent, it’s crucial for us to stay strong, united and focused on the goal and mission of peace and healing. In times like these, we ought to keep our hearts and mind open and inspire one another. We should shine our lights even brighter and stronger without despair, because that’s the only thing that can overcome darkness; The light, our inner light.

Indeed, our only strength against violence is combining efforts against it to make the world a better place. It begins with you and me. Even though the process of conflict resolution in the Middle East is going to be a gradual process, I believe that by creating non-violent solutions it can lead to a better future. Collaborative efforts not only from our leaders, government, education system and media but also from the society as a whole, facilitates peace. Peace cannot be achieved through hate, fear, and separation, pointing fingers, lack of trust or revenge. Instead, the efforts should be channeled towards the unresolved issues. A society with poisoned mind keeps on producing and experiencing the same feelings and emotions; having a victim mindset mentality, which only gives us stagnation.

Nevertheless, it’s our duty to contribute to peace building in any way we can, no matter how small or big is the contribution. Additionally, we have the mandate to challenge ourselves in the creation of personal peace and happiness in own lives as a start toward achievement of peace. Through the initiative we lead by example, knowing that we can change our lives by creating new life circumstances and realities. Everything begins and ends with our belief system, mindset, energy and the actions we choose. It impacts on our lives and lives of others forever. Peace is an inside job. Our ability to heal, let go of the past, fears, limitations, our negativity emotions and thoughts patterns, all can be some of the major keys to creating peace and healthier, happier and compassionate society. Let’s decide today to bring that inner peace, self-love, wisdom, compassion and love to everything we do and everyone that we meet. Let’s honor our differences, love our imperfections and use our uniqueness and creativity to create mindful and meaningful interactions with one another and memorable and life changing experiences.

Please join the Peace Warriors movement by sharing this crowd-funding page and donating anything you can, for my peace documentary. It’s our birthright to be happy, safe, loved, understood, protected and recognized for who we truly are. Time has come when we should put on magnifying glasses to visualize this bright light of humanity instead of the darkness, war, and distraction that separates us from one another. We should once again strive to dream and fly. The choice is in our hands.

Love you all
Sincerely
Sima Galanti

Dear friends,

I wanted to reach out and share this special and important musical project/peace documentary that I’m currently working on and have been developing for over a year now.

This project started when I wrote a song called “Broken Wings.” I wrote this song to bridge the gap between Israelis and Palestinians and bring hope and inspiration to the new generation in Israel and around the world. While I was looking to find a Palestinian artist to collaborate with me on the song, I decided to also create a documentary. I was facing so many obstacles in the process of making this dream/song. Being in the middle of a war, a never ending conflict between warring countries promoting hate, fear and instilling a radical belief system of ignorance around the situation. The film will also take you on a journey of discovering humanity; compassion, love, fear, overcoming life obstacles, and exploring the radical belief system that separates humanity as a whole. The crisis in the Middle East effects everyone’s life and has a domino effect on all of us.

After taking this Journey all the way back to Israel, to my homeland, my hometown and visiting some harsh truths about my past, my life and exploring the reality in Israel, the pain, fear and suffering among the people, I realize that the country and its people have such strong needs for hope, healing, change, trust, love, revolution, leadership and real friendships. As the world becomes more tense and violent and fear controls and separates society, we need to create social justice and wholeness by focusing on the notion that we are all one, by teaching the virtue of loving thy neighbor to our children and promote these higher virtues and bring about healing, unity, love, harmony, and peace on our beloved planet through the healing powers of love, music, and all arts.

I want this project to give a strong sense of hope, explore the human condition and put people in their heart space, so they can feel more than just analyze and take sides. The film will also raise questions regarding music and its place in healing the world, as well as the healing powers of our individual lives.

I feel a really deep and strong need to tell my story and the story of ‘Broken Wings’ to the world. I want to bring hope and inspiration to some dark places that are in strong need of light.

PLEASE HELP ME COMPLETE THIS VISION BY DONATING FOR THIS IMPORTANT CAUSE, SHARING MY CAMPAIGN, SO TOGETHER WE CAN CREATE A CHANGE, A REVOLUTION AND PEACE AROUND THE WORLD.

Broken Wings Campaign

 

Hi everyone.

I’m currently working on a very special project that means the world to me. This project started when I wrote a song called “Broken Wings”. I wrote this song to bridge the gap between Israelis and Palestinians and bring hope and inspiration to the new generation.

While I was looking to find a Palestinian artist to collaborate with me on the song I decided to also create a documentary. I was facing so many obstacles in a process of making this dream/song happen in the middle of a war, a never ending conflict between warring countries promoting hate, fear and instilling a radical belief system of ignorance around the situation.I felt an undeniable sense of commitment to something so deep that was rising from the depth of my soul.  I believe it’s my duty as artist, a human being and a spiritual being to dig deep and explore who I truly am. To discover what I want to see in my life and the world. I want to educate, inspire, and spread healing and positive messages to uplift people to a beautiful place of love.

When I heard about Naser Musa, an amazing Oud player who lives here in LA, I contacted him and decided to go on a journey to meet him and ask him to be a part of my vision.

This documentary will take you on the journey I took to make my dreams come true. This film will show how life’s circumstances and growing up in that reality of hate, fear and distrust can affect a person life, especially a young child.The film also will take you on a journey of discovering humanity; compassion, love, fear, overcoming life obstacles, and exploring the radical believe system that separates humanity as a whole and how the crisis in the Middle East effects everyone lives and have a domino effect on all of us. The film will also raise questions regarding music and its place in healing the world as well as healing our individual lives and past.

I believe that I did as much as I can on my own finishing the single and starting the documentary but to complete the full record and the documentary I need your help and support to raise $50,000. So I can hire right team of people to help me deliver an amazing and inspiring project.  Click on my Go Fund Me page and donate, share and help a great cause.

I can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on for so long with all of you who have supported me throughout my music journey for many years. You’ve become my friends and my family and I can’t wait to finally meet some of you in person on day.

Thank you so much for your love and support.
