The unchanging principles of life predate modern times. I worship Jesus Christ, whom we Christians consider to be the Prince of Peace.

I was beaten and verbally abused in detention. After a few days, the guards asked me, 'Do you know that your name is all over the Internet?' After that, I was treated better by the guards before being released. The appeals sent by Amnesty members definitely had an effect on my case.

Language empowers you. You can inform yourself and act in ways, which would be hard or impossible without English. For example, now you can help others. There is a lot of injustice in this world, which we must not ignore. It is necessary to get information about it and act now.
