(CNN)"She's like a sister for me," Laila Alsheikh tells CNN, reflecting on colleague and friend Robi Damelin.
"She's funny and she laughs and she has a beautiful smile—and she went through a transformation," Damlin responds. "And for me, I'm grateful to be a part of anybody's life to pursue transformation."


Damelin, an Israeli, and Alsheikh, a Palestinian, share intense friendship and excruciating heartache.
Both moms lost their sons to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Today, the two women facilitate dialogue meetings through the Parents Circle-Families Forum, a grassroots organization of Palestinians and Israelis who have lost immediate family members in the decades of strife. The circle seeks to bring about reconciliation, dialogue and, above all, peace.
