  •  A bridge builder, mocked for dating an Egyptian. (0+ / 0-)

    It wasn't just that Diana had used her fame and social entrée to reach out to marginalized groups.

    If it had come to that, a princess marrying an Egyptian from a Muslim background — whose family, though wealthy, was looked down upon and not socially accepted — would have been just as earth-shaking in its way as the U.S. electing a black man president.

    For a lot of people used to being treated as outsiders or social inferiors — people of color, people in poverty, people in developing countries — that meant something.

    The Dutch kids' chorus Kinderen voor Kinderen wishes all the world's children freedom from hunger, ignorance, and war.
