Freedom for Kyrgyzstan!!!!
At last, freedom for Kyrgyzstan. I spent a few months out there in 2003, so I've always had a soft spot for them. I'm still in contact with friends who work for USAID in the capital, Bishkek. I'm really concerned for everyone because President Akeyev isn't a good guy, and as it looks now, he's fled to Russia. We all know how Russia handles things, so please pray for the opposition. I'm so proud of these people... they deserve only the best, and are finally demanding it. Viva la Freedom!
