Dear George,
I will be with you in spirit. Rachael Corrie is remembered on my website. I still have the video of Issa driving us into Manger Square with your commentary. It’s a remarkable document! The time we spent in Palestine remains with me as a beacon showing how the darkness is defeated. Please light a candle for me!
Peace and love,

Salaam and thanks for the hard work. For sure my time with you was great and we can not wait to get together again. Be in touch and for sure will light a candle with you name. Best regards,
George S. Rishmawi
