1. Freedom of Speech - I was shocked when I was watching the news tonight and I saw a Sky News Report from Libya. A woman was trying to tell British journalists that she was raped and brutalised by Gaddafi's henchmen. She was physical restrained, threatened and escorted from the building. After threatening the journalists with a gun, they left the hotel, taking the woman in a car and refused to disclose where they were taking her. I am grateful that I live in a country where I have the freedom of speech and laws in place to protect me. I don't want to go into the politics or have a controversial discussion about our presence in Libya but I am glad that our country is not just sitting back and doing nothing. When people look back on atrocities that took place during civil unrest in countries like Rwanda and Cambodia, the general consensus would be that we shouldn't have sat back and did nothing and that it should never happen again.
