Is the pen....

....really mightier than the sword? We're about to find out.
I had a date with Najaf yesterday. The trip this time was a special one because I was there to give lectures to spread blogging and to talk about the importance of blogging and the ways to get blogs and use them. It is a part of the Arabic blogging project of the Friends of Democracy that aims at connecting intellectuals, students and NGOs (especially women NGOs) through a network of blogs that facilitates communication and gives democratic debates a push forward through exchanging opinions and sharing ideas among all the parties and the communities in different cities, all through blogging.

That's why our team was so excited and we were talking all the way about the significance of this networking project, the obstacles and the goals.
Actually, some of us already understand this truth. It's the rest of the world that has some catching up to do.
