In Remembrance of Rashida Harris

Author: Charlene Rawson

“Beautiful, elegant, and gentle with a core of iron and a burning passion for social justice…”

That is how I will remember Rashida Harris who I saw just last month after she returned from her most recent trip to India. When I joined the 38th LD Democrats in 2000, Rashida was, and had been for some time, our State Committeewoman. I have no idea how many decades she served as a PCO for Everett 75. I only know that a flame that burned brightly in our organization long before I arrived burns elsewhere now.

Rest in eternal peace, sweet Rashida. My deepest regret is that this world failed to achieve in your lifetime, the peace and harmony for which you so yearned.
