Hornet was struck today when reading in the Evening Standard news about what is happening in Libya. Its nothing to do with our neck of the woods, but I was so touched by the following statement I had to share it with you.
Damus Abdeljalil is just sixteen years old, and talking about defending his home town from any pro-Gaddafi counter-attack.
"If they come I will fight. In the last few days I have seen a new future, a better future. One in which we can live life in freedom. It is in Gods hands what happens to me, but I do not want to die. There is too much to live for."
