Gaddafi dead

Reports that Muammar Gaddafi has been killed in his home town of Sirte and his son Saif has been captured.

I guess if you’re going to celebrate any death, this is one.

I can’t help but think of the man I spoke with in Benghazi who returned to visit the underground prison where he spent 3 months as a 17 year old. He had been dragged out of school after refusing government requests to rob the wealthy. Every day he was taken out of the prison to stand in front of the gallows – not knowing whether this would be the day he’d die.

Now the man who terrorized Libya for so long is dead. Hopefully it will be the final step to freedom but I fear it’s still peace is still long way off for people I found to be truly generous and desperate to join the rest of the world.
