Conflict into the Middle East

The situation in the Middle East right now is very complex.  Several countries such as Egypt, Lybia, Tunisia Bahrain,etc; are trying to overthrow despots and establish some kind of democratic government.

I feel supportive of these situations because I believe people should have rights and freedom.

One of the factors influencing this problem is the world economy.  Right now the poor are getting poor and they're deperate enough to risk their lives for a good change.  In fact they need more food on their tables that any philosophy.

Meanwhile, events in Egypt make me hopeful. The poeple got rid of Mubarak.  I wish Lybia weren't  so complex.  It looks like Qaddafi will not leave.

Redwood the best climate?

I like pretty much sunny days.  In contrast, we have had rainy, cloudy, and windy days that have kept us inside our house.

This kind of weather doesn't affect me directly at all.  I managed it with umbrellas, boots, and rain coats, but my daughter was affected by this bad weather . She got pneumonia the past two weeks and I had to spent one entire night  at emergency room in a hospital.

Although she was very sick, she went back to school recentlly. Now she knows the effect of the weather on us and she is more careful about that.  On the other hand, I try to take some precautions that we need to keep us healthy.

Finally, we really don't know how the weather will be next. Sometimes we have a beautiful sunny day and sometimes we have a rainy gray day.  Don't you think?
