When I got the idea to shoot a webcam video with Danny Pearl’s parents (Judea and Ruth)  discussing Danny’s last words (“I am Jewish”), I never imagined that a year later it would have been watched by over 100,000 YouTube viewers.

Dr. Pearl e-mailed me to point out the numbers: ‘Impressive production,’ he wrote.

I never wanted any fame from this video; I didn’t even credit myself in the production.

I wish we never had to make a video like this.  And I thank the Pearls for showing amazing courage and heart—they are examples of tolerance and respect for others all of us can learn from.
