"A basic food such as olive oil reminds us of our humanity and from there an opening to understanding and recognition of our commonality. The olive is the universal symbol of peace, forgiveness and understanding. The focus on something as basic and unthreatening as olives opens a door for North Americans to experience another people’s humble but precarious life."
