Thank you so much Eva for posting this most touching memorial to a giant of spirit in a wee girls body.

I have never heard this story before. One is left speechless, and pained to see one human being being hurt by another, never mind hundreds, thousands and then more again without end.

War is a dark light low vibration of humaness, actuall hard to even associate humaness with this dense mass of humanity that approves the taking of life whatever the reason. The reason matters not. Only the action of this dead deed that keeps the soul imprisoned in the darkness of the ego.

The message to take away from your sharing of peace activist Rachel Corrie on this anniversary of her murder is to only look back for a glance to remember the lessons we have learned... and then...

Hey Eva,
don't be discouraged by the deafening silence.
I only say this because I am often perplexed
by the same thing.
Is it 'beaten wife syndrome' playing out
on the world stage?
a kind of Stockholm syndrome?

People will never realize 'peace'
must be paid for unless people like You
are here to remind us.

So keep up the good work
and don't become disgruntled.
Let Your frustrations
be Your fuel
to keep up Your good works.

Yes, she is dead and has provoked. And I do not know what will actually say the report. Where is the difference whether she was alive or already had succumbed to their injuries. We have some Palestinians among us, but there is the great silence. No interest, or no courage. 190 members and no response. No matter what topic I take.

Hey Eve,
I am sure that You are aware
that this horrible incident
is shrouded in misinformation.
Some even contend it is a hoax.

Maybe the fact that a "peace organization"
was found to be defending terrorists twice
in a two-week period will factor into the
inquiry called by several Washington state
congressional representatives into the
circumstances of Rachel Corrie's death.

One thing is certain, Rachel Corrie is dead.

... Hear the past a callin'
from Armegeddon's side
When everyone's talkin'
and noone is listenin'
how can we

Do we find the cost of freedom
buried in the ground

Mother earth will swallow you
lay your body down

Find the cost of freedom
buried in the ground
Mother earth will swallow you
lay your body down
Find the cost of freedom buried in the ground
~ Stephen Stills
