A few days ago, my Egyptian wife—she’s often more aware of things happening in North Africa than I am—told me about Rayan Oram, the five-year-old Moroccan boy who’d fallen into a dry water well and gotten stuck about a hundred feet down. The child’s plight prompted an amazing five-day attempt—many hours of which were livestreamed on Al Jazeera’s Arabic-language channel—to free him from his tiny, muddy enclosure. (If you’d like to know more about how the ordeal played out, check the story at the link I’ve provided.)
What is one thing you think the readers of this blog should know more about? (It could be a current event—like Rayan’s situation—or it could be a concept or simply a great article you’ve seen on the internet.) Please tell us about this topic and include a link (if you’ve got one).
I look forward to your posts! Thanks for reading and participating!
