Today is a day where we must remember people who have died on behalf of what they thought was freedom. In a tragic twist of fate, less than 15 hours ago, nine people were killed for the same reason in a flotilla where one of the ships bore the name of a young woman who believed that she too could make a difference. Rachel Corrie. She never expected the young Israeli soldier who was driving a bulldozer to actually drive over her as she stood in defense of the Palestinian home scheduled for destruction.
This tragedy has gone on long enough. Yes, I wish the Palestinians would stop firing their rockets into Israel. It is a pathetic effort to counteract the decades of daily abuse and deprivation at the hands of Israel. No violence is justified, but it is understood.
I fear something ugly, or shall I say uglier, is about to occur. This was such a blatant attack and videos can be found on the Internet if you care to look at them. I beg of you to inform yourself, in spite of whenever you believe, as to what really is going on. All I can say is the same thing I said that day I was on the air when the attacks on the World Trade Center occurred. May saner heads prevail.
