Protest

It's an empowering yet scary experience. When you are with hundreds of other brothers you feel as if you can crack and crumble the most powerful man on Earth, but when it is over you feel the depths of fear for what you have done. I started out being secluded, not being any part of anything that was happening. I did not want our coutry to turn into something like Egypt(now Libya). I pray with everything I have(I haven't been religious in years but the last month I have been) that Libya will not have a spillover into our country. My mind was changed when 4 protestors knocked down my door and used my home as shelter for two nights. They were aggressive yet friendly people who convinced me that they wanted what was best for everyone. I joined them for 3 seperate days. I do not wish to give anymore details(careful with the internet).

It is nice to be back on MTF and hopefully I can discuss tennis with all of you again very soon. Don't worry MTf I will be back in my Rafa and Nole supporting gear very soon, in time for clay season I hope where Rafa will run everyone over.

Fight the peacful struggle :):cool:

Sounds like all of North Africa might have a say before it is all said and done.

Hello Johnny Groove how have you been? I hope your tennis is going well.

It will touch all of North Africa. I just hope the damage is minimal. I hate the process that must be done but we are all in agrrement(my friends and family) that we will emerge greater after this is done. Their is no baby without labor pains.

And as far as the lynchers go, massive disgrace. They say they fight for us, but they do not fight for anyone. I can understand getting caught up in the flair and the moment. I did several times but I never got to the point of losing my head as these young men did. Lynching someone to get them out is not the way to transition smoothly. You cannot take your inner emotions and show them to the world that way.

Irrelevant differences in tennis is nothing compared to a fight for freedom. All the best, Everko! I hope you stay safe :)

We see what is happening in Libya and hope nothing like that will ever happen to us in our lifetime. That's how I feel at least as do most of my family and friends. I knew 2 Libyans a few years ago, hopefully they are ok.
