Black Monday

I am re-posting Vivien's 'Black Monday' blog post. Hope she doesn't mind. Fact that I, somehow, condemned it but.. words have failed me. :(

"Watching Mavi Marmara operation video gets me thinking, living life as a volunteer, I might end up being shot dead like that. Someday.. Somehow.

I am a volunteer. I am a humanitarian. And I condemn Israel's aggression to Flotilla volunteers aboard the Mavi Marmara, and to Gaza people in general, for it is a violation to humanity.

So let's put our hands together and pray for the people in Gaza, no matter what your religion is, no matter what you believe in. Because I believe that we ALL believe in humanity. And whatever you do today, please keep them close to your heart.

I am a volunteer. I am a humanitarian. And though I may not have done a lot, but I do, and will, do anything it takes to accomplish world peace, for the sake of humanity.

Volunteers around the world are mourning. I will spend the rest of the day in silence."

Here's another video you can watch. This one really making goosebumps all over me.
Pay attention to what the reporter said at minute 1:10 - 1:47
