Marla Ruzicka was a hero of mine.

The news on CNN this morning really punched me in the gut. I'd been blown away by Ms Ruzicka's intelligence, commitment & initiative when I saw her on Democracy Now! a few months back. Her work at trying to heal some of the wounds caused by this war, wounds who she bore no more responsibility for than any other American (which isn't to say none at all) in the face of now horrendously obvious danger actually inspired me. Her death should cause us all to step up our efforts even more. At the very least help continue her mission.
