    Bloggers in America can blog about anything and pretty much get away with it. But bloggers around the world actually risk their lives in telling what is really happening. Recent examples: Iran, China and Kyrgyzstan.

    When was the last time that you gave thanks for the freedoms that you currently enjoy? Do not take these freedoms for granted. Thank God for blogging and for WordPress. Best wishes for all of those that are blogging for freedom!

    Interesting video! I like and admire Rinat and his team’s unconventional attitude towards journalism.

    At this time, honest uncensored journalism would be a brave act of heroism in Kyrgyzstan, as it certainly is in too many other countries.

    Absolutely incredible. I cannot think of a more powerful thing to hear a few days before our own Independence Day.

    @Glen, thanks for reminding me to give thanks.

    And @Joe Christensen, thanks for producing the video.
