Its sad looking bad, and knowing that it has been 60 years since the Occupation of Palestine, 40 years since the Occupation of Gaza, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem, and 5 years since the killing of Rachel Corrie at the age of 23.  Rachel Corrie, an American Activist; who went to Palestine, to help turn her dream into a reality. As she was trying to stop a bulldozer, trying to help and save the poor, her young, delicate life was taken away. Rachel Corrie a peace keeper from a young age, one who will always be remembered, and one who will always be in the hearts of the Palestinian People.

“I am here for other children, I am here because i care, i am here because children everywhere are suffering, and because 40,000 people die each day from hunger, I’m here because those people are mostly children, we have got to understand the poor are all around us, and were ignoring them , we have got to understand that these deaths are preventable, we have got to understand that people in 3rd world countries, think and care, and smile, and cry just like us, we have got to understand that they are us, we are them.  My dream is to stop hunger by the year 2000, my dream is to give the poor a chance, my dream is to save the 40,000 people that die each day, my dream can, and will come true, if we all look into the future, and see the light that shines there.”
