"We've Got to Understand That They Are Us; We Are Them." Long Live the Dreams of Rachel Corrie

Tomorrow, 3/16/09, marks the sixth anniversary of the murder of Rachel Corrie, killed by Israeli Defense Forces while trying to protect a Palestinian home from being bulldozed. Please watch the videos below, of fifth grader Rachel already standing up for justice, and of this compassionate and articulate young woman speaking of her experiences in Gaza just two days before her death. And please, tomorrow, commit an act of compassion in her name, in her honor, in solace and thanksgiving to her parents, and because, always, we have to remember those who suffer, especially those who suffer in the zoo that is Gaza.
