End of an Era

The era ended as Saddam Hussein was put to death a little before dawn on December 30th, 2006, the day of Eid - ul - Adha all over the Middle East. Even moments before his death, he showed no remorse, refused to wear the hood and faced death calmly.

This tyrant who ruled over Iraq for decades, suposedly murdered thousands of shiites, in a way, I guess, his death can be justified.

Now, however, its President Bush who should be put to trial, for Afganisthan, for Iraq, for the war that he has started, which is still going on all over the world.

moments before his death i can imagine him submitting himself...its not what ppl say as him showing his bravery...its more like everything was put into perspective...his whole life. I guess when he knew he was going to be hanged he became the best human being alive.

well... who knows what he was thinking before he took his last breath. but he sure was aware of the fact that this would be a step towards meeting God face to face and probably just for a second, he saw his whole life flash before his eyes.

i'll send you a clip sometime. it's called "The last breath" (dunno if you've seen it already but anyways), since you already appreciate how its a miracle to find yourself breathing when you wake up. We all need to be awakened by this simple miracle itself.
