Maweya Abu Salah had to battle cancer with just one person by her side: her husband Jamal Abu Salah. Their new home? Room 120 at Augusta Victoria Hospital in East Jerusalem – over a border their children aren’t permitted to cross. “This happens every day,” one doctor said. It’s another reality of Israel’s military occupation of the West Bank, which began five decades ago. Read more about Maweya Abu Salah’s story in the third of our Occupied series linked in our bio.

In her speech at Wellesley College's commencement today, Hillary Clinton compared Nixon's presidency -- which ended "in disgrace ... for obstruction of justice" -- to Trump's.

Although she didn't use Trump's name, the crowd erupted in thunderous applause. (Video via Reuters)

Welcome to Rawabi, West Bank -- the newest city in the wannabe state of Palestine. Built largely by developer Bashar Masri, it’s a combination of luxury and a vision for the future. "We will live like normal people until the situation is normal," Masri says of his city.
In the second of the Occupied series on Israel’s 50-year occupation of Palestine, read about Rawabi: a revolutionary act on a hill. Click the link the bio. (Photos by Linda Davidson/The Washington Post)

The Israeli occupation turns 50 in June. Millions of Palestinians still face concrete walls, checkpoints and other Israeli controls.
What does it feel like to be “occupied” in 2017? The lives of three people – a construction worker, a cancer patient and a tycoon – offer some answers. The first in the series tells the story of Tarek Al Taweel, a Palestinian construction worker who passes the chaotic checkpoint seen in this video for work. Read more through the link in our bio.

Richard Collins III's graduation gown sits on a chair he should have been in.
Collins, 23, was supposed to graduate from Bowie State University today. On Saturday, he was fatally stabbed while visiting friends near College Park, Md. -- not far from where he would have accepted his degree.
Instead, his family accepted it on his behalf. (Photo by Neal Augenstein/WTOP via AP -- http://wapo.st/2rxBfBc)

From its first photo, this mysterious glowing orb was destined to be meme'd. So what is it really?

Meet Panda. She’s a miniature black and white horse and loyal companion to Ann Edie, a 69-year-old retired teacher who has been blind since birth. For 14 years, Panda has Edie’s service animal: helping her cross the street, find her keys and even hanging out quietly as Edie eats at restaurants. She’s one of the only guide ponies in the United States -- something trainers hope could change. (Photo by Mary Esch/AP -- http://wapo.st/2qGaQhE)

Today is the end of an era -- a very very delicious era. John Rider and his famed burrito cart, Pedro & Vinny’s, are signing off after nearly 20 years nuzzled on the corner of 15th and K Streets. “My wife and I have been trying to stay here — we really don’t want to leave, we have family here — but then I start looking around, and if I’m honest with myself, it’s like, this area doesn’t need another freakin’ food place.” (Photo by Astrid Riecken/For The Washington Post)

At the beginning of April, Zaan Scott was a 25-year-old with a fiancée he adored and a job he loved as a Capitol Hill swim instructor. It only took one bullet in an armed robbery – Scott was buying candies for to-be wife Jamese Harvey – to change his life forever.
One of our columnists brought a photographer along to interview the couple yesterday. In their conversation, they discussed their wedding, first date and plans for a long future ahead. Just hours after their meeting, Scott died. “I’m like an open wound,” Harvey said on the sudden loss. “Everything hurts.” To read more about their love story cut too short, click the link in our bio.
