As a journalist, Daniel Pearl traveled to distant countries with a vision. He wanted to show the rest of the world what one person could accomplish in the war-torn country of Afghanistan; his mission, to report the truth about how children and families are affected by war and hate. Daniel Pearl was a violinist. He was so dedicated to the world of music that he remained a violinist until his death while helping families in Afghanistan tell their stories of horror about life after 9/11. We dedicate this week of violin lessons and rehearsals in five schools, this "String of Pearls," to the memory of Mr. Daniel Pearl, an accomplished violinist and journalist who perished while living his dream. Thank you for your inspiration, talent and courage, Mr. Pearl.
