This is a lovely note. I definitely agree with you Shadi about forgetting the Arab Springs. I don't think it's remembrance is an act of defiance but a necessary act to make sure we don't make the same mistakes we did the next time such an opportunity presents itself to bring democracy to long suffering people.
