The embalming effect this video had on me, sitting alone after midnight, sleepless and worried about the knights of Rabaa, on the eve following the horrible massacre at the republican guards after I saw their blood with my bare eyes. I was switching between channels, following the news, when it came up on BBC Arabic.
I was so engrossed by it that I never took notice of the title. Earlier today, I tried to locate it on their website, but to no avail. To my utmost happiness though, just some minutes before writing this, it came up again, when dad, sister and her husband were switching the channels. I instantly knew it was on because of the music playing in the video’s background. This time, I saw the title, this post’s title, and here I’m sharing it with you..
The part that made my heart weep starts at minute 9 and lasts for about 5 minutes. How blameless it all is, how.. beautiful..
I know you enough to know this video might make you cry, but I don’t know you enough to let you know I know..
