Merry Christmas Greeting to a Friend
"Wondeme", "Kena Seta Yemelemaele Gobata" in this day of communication it is hard to leave the field for the very few and be spectator and that is what I did my part in 2007.
How could one be a spectator when ones country and people held hostage by very few and their foreign backers who claim to be especialist for our problems.
Was it not a very few patriots like "Ras Abebe Aregaye" and others who draw a line during the Italian invasion while many were lined up to eat Spaghetti?
This time is not different, we saw many of our friends lined up to buy property walking on the bodies of our dead and enjoy the food and "women" of Ethiopia with our current fascists.
"Wondeme", if you and me can not draw a line on good and evil who can do it for us?
TPLF is afraid of paper and ink and the only weapon we have right now and we have to use it to bring change for our people back home.
I finished reading a book by the widow of Danny Pearl, "Mighty Heart" who was beheaded in Pakistan after 9/11 while he was in mission to report the under working of Islamists and it is a moving story and if you have not read it please pick it up.There is also a movie about it by Angelina Joline, the "mother" of Zahara from Ethiopia.
I wish you and your family a happy holiday and the coming year to reach to our goal to live in a free and democratic Ethiopia.
I have enjoyed checking in on you at Addis Voice. You are doing a fabulous work on creating forum on matters affecting us and our country. Thank you for sharing your ideas and for your objectivity in your comments. I appreciate you energy. I look forward to seeing you next year. Keep up the excellent work. Keep it coming. I take this opportunity to wish you and your loved
family a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
