Shiri's Story: Lest We Forget

I received this email tonight. Yom Kippur this Sunday and Monday is about teshuva, return to goodness through repentance. I am posting this in the hope that it might inpire some to rethink tolerance or understanding of terrorism. I also hope it will make all of us consider how our own words and actions might contribute to a better future for everyone.
"Hello,

We are the family of 22 year old Shiri Negari who was one of 19 people killed in a Jerusalem bus suicide bombing on June 18th 2002.

We cannot allow Shiri's death to become just another statistic. We send you this message because we think Shiri's story must be heard. Please help us distribute Shiri's story (locally, media and around the world), and preserve Shiri's memory using any means you may have.

We want Shiri to be remembered for who she was, and we know that anyone who will get to know Shiri through the web site will realize that there is absolutely no justification for suicide bombings.

On the following web site you can find Shiri's story (In 5 languages), view her pictures and listen to her singing."
A beautiful person who sang "sing a song for love and not for war" was murdered. May she rest in the care of the source of all life and goodness, the most merciful G-d.

Her legacy is now behind her. Ours remains before us. What will we choose?
