On first seeing this great photograph taken by Libyan doctor Prashant Bhatt of childrens’ shadows in Khadra forest Tripoli, It immediately reminded of and deeply resonated with, the ultimate sacrifice made by many brave young Libyan men during the revolution to overthrow a brutal dictator in 2011 – M. St.M

Fabulous photo. All the better when it has something to say.
I fear that the existing tyrannical regimes like Saudi Arabia will become even more entrenched.
Or thinking first and then having a look around at what could end up happening to them if they do? U-(
Do they feel lucky?
Excellent image, a stark reminder to us all of what the people went through to achieve what they now have.
It’s a big moral dichotomy this “Arab Spring”… the Arab peoples seem to possess an almost infinite capacity to inflict the most terrible suffering upon their own, yet at the same time also have, especially now among the young, a truly incredible bravery in fighting against repression, tyranny and barbarism when inflicted upon them.
Lets hope the era of brutal dictatorships in the region is now rapidly coming to an end and that the genocidal tyrant Assad (Syria) falls soon.
