Dear Jenny and Derek…as I write, you are locked up in Israel somwhere, and we’re waiting to hear that you’re ok.
Derek, do you remember when I was giving the FG nonviolence training in Greece in 2008, and the enormity of the challenge of taking boats through the blockade suddenly sunk in, and you looked round at us all and said – “You people are mad! You’re absolutely mad!”
…and then you got right on with being part of making it happen.
We could never have done that trip without you, nor any of the following 7 trips without you and Jenny. And the Rachel Corrie, well, she was all your efforts.
I’m so proud of the Rachel Corrie’s attempt, of the both of you, and all the crew.
