I seem to write only when something really bad happens. Well here's again no exception.
A wonderful woman I had just come to know has just been killed in a car bomb blast in Baghdad. Marla Ruzicka had set up an organization call CIVIC Worldwide ( http://www.civicworldwide.org/ ) to campaign for innocent victims in conflicts, focusing on Iraq and Afghanistan, and she had just started to work to help the conflict victims in Nepal. I met her in December in the US and again in Kathmandu in January and I was always disarmed in the most positive way by her personality. She made me question assumptions and complacency in such a strong way. She made me nervous but in a really positive way. She recently helped me in organizing this speaking tour to bring attention to the human rights violations in the conflict in Nepal. Please visit this link and read the memorium:
Please do - this amazing woman gave her life. The least you can do is read the links.
Onward, one foot in front of the other.
