quote:Since that day in Piedmont Park, Elizabeth Corrie has found herself in the spotlight as well. Corrie, who sometimes wears a pin with a black-and-white photograph of her cousin, has spoken to groups around the city about her cousin and the plight of Palestinians. She has called the White House and written letters to Congress. Each day, she has vowed to do something to keep Rachel's memory alive and to seek answers about her death.
Rachel's death "radicalized me to do something," said Elizabeth Corrie, who considers herself a private person but who has deliberately placed herself in a political hot zone.
