Once used to break up Palestinian protests, these tear gas canisters have found new purpose as vessels for life. This grenade garden in the West Bank village of Bil'in serves as a memorial for a protester who was killed by a tear gas grenade in 2009. The powerful imagery evokes hope in the face of challenge and reminds us all to appreciate the beauty of life.
