You are in my thoughts, Libya

by Makola

You are in my thoughts Libya.

Rise again and this time around, unite, and choose wisely. Democracy is great but not everyone is right all the time.

The pictures they released of Qaddafi (however he spelt his name) numbed me. Not because of how graphic they were, rather because I would never wish a man to die like that by on his own soil by his own people.

I would never wish anyone a death like that.

And for those who have lost family, friends, neighbours, I pray and hope the wounds heal. 

The scars will remain forever, too much blood has been shed.

But you are here and real and alive.

Remember that.
