Sister Dianna is the embodiment of integrity. I first met her when she invited me to D.C. to offer a movement and creative arts playshop for the attending members, at the 2001 TASSC annual meeting and vigil. Dianna, and TASSC, became the heart of my work with survivors of torture. I grope for words to describe the impact of a decade + of advocating, drumming, marching, dancing, chanting, praying, protesting and a few times, watching members be arrested at our annual gathering and vigil. Dianna combined passion, persistence and an unrelenting devotion to human rights to her work. In the scores of ways she inspired, lovingly pushed and always organized us, TASSC is the illumination she brought to this world. In 2003 she "lovingly pushed" me to step into the Presidency of the very newly formed TASSC Board of Directors.There was no "No". The honor of learning from and working alongside Sister Dianna remains an imprint I cherish. Sister Dianna's wings were always strong. May you fly always bold, Dianna. The fire you lit will continue to shine light into the world's darkest moments and places for eternity.
