In Remembrance of Edward Said

Palestine, Palestinians; their story, their history, their journey with suffering, and their stolen rights, are all facts people learned from the great Palestinian intellectual Edward Said, who dedicated himself to his land: Palestine, and its people.
His writings showed the world the truth, which media failed to reflect. Injustice, humiliation, and cruelty of imperialism, were all subjects of his writings.
It’s been one year already since Edward Said the thinker, the teacher, the story teller and above all the proud Palestinian, has passed away.
Let’s not forget his work, let’s not ignore his words, let’s not waste his efforts.
Let’s all hope that Palestine will be generous enough to offer us such great people to spread the truth and remind the world of the “invisible people”… the people of Palestine.
