What I did
It is an exciting day as we have arrived at our first location. Here at Camp David in Frederick County, Maryland. This place was almost sacred in that it made such peace so many years ago. In your bones, you can almost feel the way that serenity settled around the countries. Things may not have always stayed the same, but it was a day to remember.
After almost two weeks of secret negotiation at Camp David, representatives from Egypt and Israel signed two framework agreements, with President Jimmy Carter as a witness to this agreement. The two weeks before this were filled with intensity and drama
The idea was initially brought up shortly into Carter’s presidency, in an attempt to ‘rejuvenate’ peace in the Middle East. Carter met with the representatives of each country several times before the thirteenth day negotiation process began. Today, the Middle East is no longer happy. Foreign affair issues are heated to near flame - Obama and Romney have debated about. What should they do?
Maybe if Obama or Romney were to visit this area, they could feel the same peace that my colleagues and I are feeling at this very moment. We would advise whoever our future president is to just wait for things to cool down a bit. As you can see from what Jimmy Carter attempted, although it worked temporarily, an agreement in the middle of fire isn’t necessarily the most helpful option. It is a possibility that the situation may cool down, and if so, then would be the time to make a fresh attempt at negotiation. We hope to see something like this in the future!
