Libya and friendship

So, I am not very vocal about supporting or not supporting the uprising in Libya. However, it has been a situation that I am watching and following with great interest. One of my dear elementary school friends was from Libya. Her father took the family back home in the late 80s for reasons I do not remember. (I was like 10 or so at the time) I do remember her though. I remember how quiet but friendly she was and how we got along quite well. I remember that she was very smart and made frequent observations that made me smile. I received a picture from her in a letter sometime after she moved. (We were pen pals for a few years, although life happened and we (probably me) just stopped writing.) I still have that picture to this day and look at it every once in a while wondering what happened to her.

Hend, you are in my thoughts, now and always. I hope you are safe. And I hope you are helping your country do the right thing. :)

Love you and Miss you.

This is exactly the kind of thing the world needs. It's the personal connections that reduce the degree to which there is an 'Us' & a 'them'. We are all the other to someone.

Big Picture, I think Libya is going to be a safer place, but that the next 18 months are going to be really rough.

They have no civil institutions. Now is a great time to find your friend, to reach out.

I hope she is okay, that you're happy, and that you reconnect.
