The saying goes that “No news is good news.” Unfortunately, we’ve been getting the news down here. The Middle East is in the middle of protesting and taking down governments. People are demanding rights like they never have before. They are saying no to the answer of “Because I said so.” They are totally changing their destinies.
I’ve been reading books underway to understead the culture of the Middle East and at times it’s appalling. Not because I’m against their way of life or even because it’s wrong. It’s because it’s so different from my own. I’ve been a lot of places and have never experienced the absolute rule that these people have been living under. The world is truly a changing place. I should enjoy my freedom while it lasts.
