Video of the day -- freedom from dehumanization

The shroud conceals the humanity of the person, but the person is always there.  The voice-over is in Arabic -- translation:

Look at her
No, don't take your eyes off her
She is hope
She is life
She is love
She is desire
She is the power to be
I missed you in the name [truth] of freedom
You are the power of existence
You are hope
You are life
You are love
You are desire
You are the power to be
The awakening is you
The sunrise is you
Rise again now
Freedom..... freedom..... freedom.....

When I look at Islamic men and women, I think it's the men that should cover their faces.

Funny how something so simple can be so impactful. And she's beautiful.
I wish I knew how to speak Arabic. It's such a rich culture! Pity the Theocrazy.

Debra: Of course!

Mike: You may have a point there.

Sixpence: It's a difficult language, but very rewarding. And yes, a very rich culture.

This extraordinary video gave me chills. Though I’m glad you provided the translation, it wasn’t necessary. Her eyes said it all. I hope she’s safe somewhere.
