Remembrance : Rachel Corrie 1979-2003

In honor of non violent resistance and struggle!
Remembrance: Rachel Corrie 1979-2003


I would never call it final a resting place
the spot where she was crushed and smashed
into the landscape of a brutal Occupation

I would call it the restless spot

the place where a soul's liberation rises above
the one act that could best depict
the oppression she stood so firm against

Though crushed and smashed
oppression did not smash her spirit
and leaving traces of herself
beyond the mortal bruises
her unholy sacrifice
reclaims the spirit of non violent resistance

We pick up bits and pieces
We scoop up Rachel
and carry her along

We sing her spirit's song


What else do we do ?
Do we drive over other young women?
Do we blow ourselves up?
Do we tear down all of the homes in an entire town?
to build more walls and ghettoes?

In a restless place
there is Soul
that rises above hatred
and hovers in righteousness
and has no vengeance
only longing longing longing
for a peaceful
resting place.

In remembrance, Rachel Corrie 1979-2003

Sólo traduciré esta parte del HOmenaje y REcuerdo aRachel Corrie,voluntaria norteamericana pacifista en Palestina , que fué salvajemente atropellada y aplastada por una excavadora "CAterpillar" israelí, cuando ella se colocó delante para evitar una demolición :
"Aunque la aplastaran y destrozaran
la opresión no consiguió aplastar su espíritu"
Rachel vive en cada niño palestino que nace para luchar contra el Invasor Israelí.
No te olvidamos.
