One young woman’s voice—intense and poetic—grapples with universal ideas as it chronicles a personal journey
cut short. How do we find our way in the world? How do our actions affect others? What do we owe the
rest of humanity?
These are the timeless questions so eloquently posed by Rachel Corrie, a young American
activist killed on March 16, 2003, as she tried to block the demolition of a Palestinian family’s home in the
Gaza Strip. She was 23-years-old.
LET ME STAND ALONE: The Journals of RACHEL CORRIE reveals Corrie’s striking gifts as a poet and writer while telling her story
in her own words, from her earliest reflections to her final emails. Her writing brings to life all that it means to come of
age—a dawning sense of self, a thirst for one’s own ideals, and an evolving connection to others, near and far. Corrie writes
about the looming issues of her time as well as the ordinary angst of an American teen, all with breathtaking passion, compassion,
insight and humor. Her writing reverberates with conviction and echoes her long-held belief in the oneness of
humanity: “We have got to understand that they dream our dreams, and we dream theirs.”
