Standing in the way, alone.
With weapons of compassion,
a longing for justice and a megaphone.
Flattened by the machinery of destruction.
In the Gazastrip in the year 2003.
A joung woman with the name "Rachel Corrie".

Embarking from Ireland, together.
Laden with aidgoods,
manned with courage and hope.
Hijacked by Pirates.
In the Med in the year 2010.
A ship with the name "Rachel Corrie".

Your spirit "Rachel Corrie"
is a lighthouse,
is a signpost.
Your spirit "Rachel Corrie"
cannot be smeared,
cannot be shot.
It is the spirit which makes us human.

Ireland, 17th June 2010
