The Seattle Post-Intelligencer last Friday published a list of memorial tributes to noted people from the Northwest who died during 2003:
They changed the way we worked, played, lived. They made us see the world in different ways. They made us smile. Sometimes, they made us cry. Whether their lives were long and full, or tragically shortened, they became a part of the fabric of who we all are in the Northwest. Here are just some of those who died this year, leaving our lives a little richer for having known them.Among the people on the list was
Rachel Corrie, 23, an activist from Olympia who was crushed to death by an Israeli military bulldozer while protesting the destruction of Palestinian homes in the Rafah refugee camp. After its internal investigation, the Israeli military said the driver of the bulldozer could not see Corrie. Corrie's parents were not satisfied with the Israeli explanations, and in September they called for an independent U.S. investigation of her death. Corrie died March 16.How pathetic and reprehensible must be the lives of the people at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, if a cheerleader for terrorism can make their lives richer.
