Rachel Corrie

She was a human rights activist, a pacifist, who believed we should work to make the world a better place to live in, a place where dignity, solidarity, justice prevailed. She was already aware of social issues at the age of 10, when she made a speech at school urging everybody to fight against poverty. She got killed at 23, minutes after this picture was taken. She was trying to prevent the bulldozer from destroying a Palestinian doctor's home.
