Fallen Heroes page added.

20 04 2011

After my last few posts on Vittorio Arrigoni it only seemed right I make a page to honour all the fallen heroes in Palestine. Please check it out in the bar above titled ‘Fallen Heroes’ – Dedicated to Vittorio Arrigoni, Juliano Mer-Khamis, Thomas Harndell, Rachel Corrie and the 9 martyrs aboard the MV Mavi Marmara. You will find a photo, birth & death date and a little on how they died. There are also various links you can have a look at.

Whilst creating the page I also came across this beautiful poem via a FB page which is really fitting for the martyrs. I contacted the author who has given me permission to share it on my blog. You will find the links to his website and the FB page he created underneath the poem. I will also add his blog in the side bar under the title ‘blogroll’ so it will be easy to find.

POEM

These were not souls of the Innocent
For they chose to make their stand
They were born in quieter times and places
Before coming to Palestine’s land

These were not armed with weapons
Yet stood knowing against bullets and knives
They strongly resisted the fanatical poison
That has stolen too many lives

They shared ALL the life that was in them
They risked every thing every day
Gave their hearts and their souls and their smiles to Palestine
And nothing could chase them away

Evil could NEVER defeat them!
and though Death has come and then gone
These heroes were larger than either of those
The warmth of their courage lives on! ❤

And we _ who continue their struggle
For ALL of our martyrs we cry
We shall carry them with us living their dream
SWEET PALESTINE SHALL NOT DIE!
