Daniel Pearl's Friend Remembers

If you don't read much else this weekend be sure to read Asra Nomani's courageous and reflective story about her friend Daniel Pearl and her quest to find answers which led her to Guantanamo and back:
And so it became clear, at Guantánamo, that the only work left for me to do was to heal my wound. 
“What is grief?” I recently asked psychologist Steven Stosny, posing the obvious question I’d avoided for so long. 
“It’s an expression of love,” he told me. “When you grieve, you allow yourself to love again.” 
“How do you grieve?” I asked him. 
“You celebrate a person’s life by living your life fully.”

Read the whole thing.
