News from around the world....
I know it is old news but I only recently came across Peter Greste's talk at the National Press Club. His talk is wonderful humbling and covers much about free speech and how the dedication of a few and the engagement of many is what supported him to be able to come home. He is still a man 'guilty of a crime' according to the Egyptian law ruling, but without the constant engagement and negotiation he would still be in that Egyptian jail.
One of his requests from all of us was to understand the importance of choosing to be aware of what happens in different countries around the world. See the copy of Peter Greste at the Press Club and a copy of the video through this article...see link here
