Well this has been the year from hell so far. I barely have the energy to sit upright or type right now. Slept about 5 hours in the last week. But for our family for now the disaster seems to have died down. My parents called at about noon today to tell us they had finally landed in Malta and were waiting in line to be processed through immigration.
Sadly the conflict is that as we watch the situation progress in Libya I am filled with a sense of relief to know that my parents are safe and out of the country, but torn with horrible knowledge that thousands are still trapped in Libya and face mortal danger.
We can only sit and watch and pray that the world will step up and not allow this genocide and mass murder to continue. How can we, as a country so blessed by stability and free speech, possibly stand by and not take action when tragedy like this is befalling an entire nation of people crying out for nothing more than freedom?
In case you're wondering, no, sanctions don't get shit done. Someone needs to get in there with a special forces team and pop a cap in Gaddafi's ass. Like yesterday.
Thanks for everyone's kind thoughts and notes of support. Let's not forget Libya and the fact that there are nearly 6 million people left in the country who still need our support and help in order to survive this genocide.
