Remembering Mira: Palestinian Warrior for Peace

Remembering Mira


As the country, and indeed, the world, mourns the tragic and unnecessary loss of so many young lives to the Newtown School Massacre, many peace activists and advocates for non-violence around the world are mourning another loss… the loss of a tireless advocate for peace and reconciliation, Mira Dabit.  


I was sound asleep in my grandson’s bed when my cell phone woke me on December 15th at 12:30 a.m.  Slightly annoyed at being awakened, I answered.  It was my partner from Searching for Occupy, Denise Valdez.  She was crying.  No.  She was sobbing.  For a few moments, I listened to her crying.  Then, she managed to blurt out, “Crystal, I have some bad news…”  A pause.  A sob.  “Mira is dead.”
