Perhaps you ask, who Gonzalo Lira is, or rather was.
I won't give details to him or his background, or even my reasons for mentioning him and his passing here.
But today, things just became too much and I finally had to break my long silence here.
I am angry for so many reasons, and starting to write here again might cause me to break my equilibrium and finally explode.
In a way, this post already is that, me exploding - or at least bubbling over.
Gonzalo Lira (1968 - 2024, killed in and by UKR)
take a moment and say a prayer with me for Gonzalo Lira and his family
(he has two young children) and also for what he fought for - for the
freedom of speech.
Is 'freedom of speech' as dead as he is now?
(I might not answer comments on this post, though I hesitate to restrict them altogether.)
