In solidarity with the Lebanese Journalist, May Shidyak, who was seriously wounded (lost left leg and hand) when a bomb exploded inside her car north of Beirut a couple of days ago, Lebanese bloggers have a lot to say and ideas to support.

    Freedom of speech is a dynamic tool to growth and development..
    Writers write to connect government,academics,business,and entertainment to:
    -eliminate limitations.
    -address alternatives.
    -achieve solutions.
    -gain growth.
    What if writing takes different direction than we appreciate..
    should readers react on aggressive manners?!Whatever and whenever their motives are,responds should not reach what we saw in the news..
    I noticed a topic about a local historic war (occured century ago in N.East Africa) written on Sept.11th tragedy 4th anniversary in middle eastern newspaper(Asharq Alawsat)..Did U.S. Air Force respond to the topic?!No they did not,because it does not concern them..Why well known writer attacked without any wrong doing other than creative freedom of expression?
