Rachel Corrie / Evinden Uzakta Kanatsız Bir Melek

“Let me know if you have any ideas about
what I should do with the rest of my life.”
– Rachel’s last email

From a letter to Rachel’s mother dated February 27th, 2003:

“Love you. Really miss you. I have bad nightmares about tanks and bulldozers outside our house and you and me inside. Sometimes the adrenaline acts as an anesthetic for weeks and then in the evening orat night it just hits me again – a little bit of the reality of the situation.
I am really scared for the people here.
“Yesterday, I watched a father lead his two tiny children, holding his hands, out into the sight of tanks and a sniper tower and bulldozers and Jeeps because he thought his house was going to be exploded…Iwas terrified to think that this man felt it was less of a risk to walk out in view of the tanks with his kids than to stay in his house.

I was really scared that they were all going to be shot and I tried tostand between them and the tank. This happens every day, but just this father walking out with his two little kids just looking very sad, just happened to get my attention more at this particular moment…“When I come back from Palestine, I probably will have nightmares and constantly feel guilty for not being here, but I can channel that into more work. Coming here is one of the better things I’ve ever done. So when I sound crazy, or if the Israeli military should break with their racist tendency not to injure white people, please pin the reason squarely on the fact that I am in the midst of a genocide which I am also indirectly supporting, and for which my government is largely responsible.

“I love you and Dad…”


düsünce kahvesinden dipnot:

Rachel Corrie 2003 senesinde Gazze’de, Gazzeli bir ailenin evi yıkılmasın diye buldozerlere dur dedi! Ama buldozer durmadı. 23 yaşındaydı. Gayrı-müslim dediler ama o da şehittir.

bu mektup o inşallah cennet-mekan olduktan sonra the guardian gazetesinde yayınlandı.Son yazdığıydı.
