A Country on Fire

In January 2011 Al Jazeera streamed a live feed from Tahrir Square in Cairo. I watched day after nail biting day as the turmoil unfolded. Tonight, I’ve become fixed on a live video feed from the Kiev. Esprero TV has brought us onto the frontline of the protestors at Independence Square. A fire fueled by trash, discarded clothing, and molotov cocktails draws the line separating riot police from activists.

CNN is reporting 21 deaths today in Kiev, I hope that a peace is reached quickly and that it is more lasting than in Egypt.
