No school for me today.
Normally there is something joyful about a random day off but it is hard to be gleeful when you are surrounded by men with sticks. Unless of course the men happen to be Jedi Knights - that would be different, obviously .
I feel sad for Turkey right now...people fighting for their freedom to protest, freedom to express themselves. But I think it is important never to forget Syria, fighting for their lives across the next border. They need to be remembered desperately right now. They were like the Turks once. Marching peacefully for more freedom from their Government. Now look at them. My poor shattered friends.
