Why a ship named Rachel Corrie is headed to Gaza
by Larry Geller
Check out some of the “related videos” that should appear after viewing this one. Rachel Corrie, of course, is the person killed by an Israeli bulldozer driver while trying to prevent it from destroying a Palestinian home.
Thank you, Larry, for that video of Rachel Corrie as a 5th Grade idealist. It brought a tear to my eye. Foolish child. Didn't she know those values are not meant to be taken seriously by grown-ups?
My hat off to you, to Rachel's family and to our courageous sister, Ann Wright, who is sitting in an Israeli jail for upholding the same values which motivated Rachel.
warm aloha, in a world which has been deadened by cynicism and selfishness posing as "realism."
