Journey 1423: to boldly go where no Arab Country has gone before!

The free people of Tunisia chose on the 14th and confirmed on the 23rd their choice of a modern democratic society.

However, while the 14th ushered this new freedom era, democracy remains far beyond voting. It also requires, among others, vigilance and a strong will to defend one's conviction in a civilized manner while respecting others.

We just started our democratic journey and it is worthy of our martyrs and the expectations of our future generations and the true free world.

Today is time to learn from the outcomes of our first democratic step. Empowered with this fresh experience and lessons, we are called to invent a new political paradigm for Tunisia and why not the rest of the World.

Before ending this short and challenging but optimistic blog, I'd like to share with you few poetic words from Khalil Gibran's The Prophet.

The Coming of the Ship:
And now your ship has come, and you must needs go. Deep is your longing for the land of your memories and the dwelling-place of your greater desires; and our love would not bind you nor our needs hold you. Yet this we ask ere you leave us, that you speak to us and give us of your truth. And we will give it unto our children, and they unto their children, and it shall not perish. In your aloneness you have watched with our days, and in your wakefulness you have listened to the weeping and the laughter of our sleep. Now therefore disclose us to ourselves, and tell us all that has been shown you of that which is between birth and death.

And he answered,
People of "Free Tunisia," of what can I speak save of that which is even now moving your souls?

Tunisia Again: 15O Tunisia's Evacuation Day and Globalchange!

Not only did the Tunisian 14th of January initiate a global tsunami of freedom, it is today again showing the way by recalling, while celebrating the evacuation of the last french soldier from its soil, that the power of people's will is stronger than gun's fire.

Today's 15th of October (15O) attest to the far reaching effects of Free Tunisia pure revolution. A Tsunami of peaceful global action engulfing the planet and inspiring free people to unite and speak in one strong voice on behalf of humanity. The first words of a manifesto illustrating this resounding collective voice say:

"On 15 October 2011, united in our diversity, united for global change, we demand global democracy: global governance by the people, for the people. Inspired by our sisters and brothers in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Bahrain, New York, Palestine-Israel, Spain and Greece, we too call for a regime change: a global regime change."

This sweeping freedom tsunami, initiated in the land of the free Tunisia, and spreading all over the living planet, will energetically sweep away any malignant seeds should they resist to join the awakening of our planetary collective consciousness.

The coming planetary freedom era is being called aloud by free voices, like roaring drams, from all over the corners of planet Earth. People all over are keeping the flame lit and alive while chanting the chains breaking words of our mighty poets and praying for the blessings of our martyrs that either gave their blood or died awaiting a loaf of bread.

May God bless our mother-ship Earth with gentle winds of change so that it sails swiftly towards calm and serene waters and anchor its destiny to where we all WILL it to go and be for the benefit of all generations of living people and creatures.
