The Blogosphere Suffers the Loss of a Heroine

I was so disappointed to read about the death of young 25 year old Hadeel Alhodaif, who is one of the leading and most courageous outspoken bloggers of the Saudi Blogospere.  Her blog “Heaven’s Steps” is a proud example of her wish for “Freedom of Expression”  and an excellent example for young people in our region that sometimes your thoughts and hopes will not go unnoticed if you voice them.  May her soul rest in peace.
