In Memory of Marla Ruzicka

In Memory: Marla Ruzicka

Marla was killed by suicide bomber on airport road in Baghdad two years ago today. Marla was working to bring attention to the Iraqi civilians killed in this war. She was working to bring them some compensation for their losses, by pressuring the US government officials. She felt that they had a legal and moral responsibility to compensate the families of civilians killed or injured by military conflicts. She founded an organization called CIVIC (Campaign For Innocent Victims in Conflict) to achieve this goal.

She was a good person, and she inspired me. The photo came from CIVIC's website.
