I think this definitely qualifies as positive!
It’s good to hear that one day before we celebrate freedom, someone has become free. BBC Reporter Alan Johnston has been freed from capture by the “Army of Islam” group. Johnston was kidnapped four months ago in Gaza while on assignment there. While there are definitely more people who need to be freed, I’m hopefully that some movement has been made in the region, especially if Johnston’s release was indeed negotiated by Hamas.
I think that’s a pretty good start to the week.
