Shane Bitney Crone – NO FREEDOM UNTIL WE ARE EQUAL

I watched this when it was first uploaded and while I loved the general message even if I didn’t necessarily agree with some things like him and his former partner praying to change. Then, I thought about it and it really is his story and his life. The message is powerful.

Stunning video collage: Egypt Revolution from the Start to the end.

Via@iYassin

A visually stunning collection of images and footage of  revolution in Egypt  that led the ouster of  Hosni Mubarak. Clearly a  lot of blood sweat and tears went into editing this and it is well worth  viewing. The tribute to the fallen is deeply touching. So many lives lost in the pursuit of basic human and economic rights.

PATRIOTISM
Innominatus
Sir Walter Scott  1771-1832

BREATHES there the man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
‘This is my own, my native land!’
Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d
As home his footsteps he hath turn’d
From wandering on a foreign strand?
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonour’d, and unsung.
