After months of posting horrible comments on other peoples' blogs, I finally set up my own. I guess I should have done this a while ago.
Someone asked me if I liked "the smell of death in the morning" (obviously trying to make it sound like I'm some kind of monster). I wanted to reply "no, I prefer the smell of freedom".
Freedom from oppression. Freedom from war. Freedom from genocide and democide. Freedom from corruption. Something many parts of the world are still struggling to achieve - and some aren't really getting anywhere.
