2013, are you going to dissapoint me?

2013 u're going to be here in no time... Do u promise to leave heartache behind?

2013 What do u have in store? Days to look forward to or ones we pretend to ignore?

2013 your sister has left a bit of a scar, to remind me that some friends are worth nothing but a slammed door.

2013 your sister may have been a bit unkind, but you know what, it opened my eyes and removed the blinds.

2013 is it humanely possible to love and be eternally grateful for my family even more?

2013, 2012 showed me truth, love, heartache, joy and pain, but I do not mind going through any of it again.

2013 what will ur obituary contain? Hopefully nothing 2014 will not fear to maintain.

(2) From my archive...

My dear Egyptian friends and my friends who have Egyptian roots, or consider Egypt to be their home, my condolences on the recent football events.

If anything, it makes my heart weep to see how cheap a human life is and how politics is a filthy game that uses OUR lives as part of it's agenda...

ان لله و ان اليه راجعون
الله يرحمهم و يجعل مثواهم الجنة

Those people who were brutally killed, didn't die cheering for Port Said or Al Ahly as they want people to believe...their death will tell a story of how they died to make Egypt a better place for generations to come... Inshalla their blood, and all our Martyr's blood, be it in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Syria or Yemen, never goes to waste, and the reason why their life was taken away or given away voluntarily, will always be a reminder of what they paid for us to be here, breathing and alive.

My condolences,

Syria ya Syria!

Syria, ya Syria! You've been living in a very very long dark tunnel, where the light might only seem like a distant memory...

Despite Russia's and China's efforts in blocking that stream of light and muting your cries for help, a day very soon inshalla is coming where you're going to shine so bright that you'll be blinding everyone who turned a blind eye on you and and scream out so loud you'll deafen everyone who was trying to mute you!

Looking back...

I wrote the following around this time last year:

Eid Mubarak everyone...9 months ago, we were all dreaming of a Free Libya, one where we longed to see Independence flags raised in, the national anthems blaring from speakers, the freedom in the air...

Alhamdulilah we got that...however, i feel that so many of us, myself included, have lost our appreciation and gratitude for the sacrifices that so many of our Libyan brothers and sisters made for ...
us to see those flags and hear that anthem...

I wish we can all take a moment, look back, and remember how we felt 9 months ago; maybe then we can stop complaining, stop blaming, and stop criticizing everyone and everything that is helping our Libya, get back on it's feet.

We gave Gaddafi 42 years... never forget that. 42 years. It's only fair that we give anyone who's trying a little over 24 hours before we start booing him or her off the stage...

Kul sana o intum, o your families, o our Libya salmeen :)
Looking back, I can officialy declare, I have lost hope... not in my country, but in my people...which is worse, because, my people are what make my country.
