The Biggest Concrete Hallmark Card

Via Daily Candy's Valentine's Day email I hear about Send a Message whereby one can pay Palestinians living in Ramallah to spray paint messages on the separation wall for a fee (30 Euro, which is kinda steep for graffiti and 3 digital pics). I'm just really saddened by this. All of it. Even if the money goes to pay for basketball courts and laundry services it's still bittersweet. And not at all romantic. What are you going to do? Tack the photo on your fridge and pop open a bottle of champagne? Happy Valentines Day, honey. I bought you a piece of someone else's suffering.
