Upon Rachel Corrie's Death Anniversary...

Ten years ago, on March 16, Rachel Corrie was killed in Rafah, Gaza Strip.  She was engaging in nonviolent action to protect one of  countless Palestinian homes Israel has destroyed. She was also added to this injustice.. Rachel,  like many homes of the innocent, was brutally run over by a U.S.-built Caterpillar bulldozer.

I just read this heartfelt, wrenching article this morning and can imagine no other better tribute to such an act of courage and love:

The first and last photos used here come from the following:

Also see Aljazeera today for more of this story and a really striking quote by Rachel on human dignity...
