Just read about the death of Lasantha Wickramatunge on this article via mrbrown. I must admit that my general knowledge doesn’t include much on Sri Lanka – I’ve started reading up on Wikipedia, though.
Somehow I just find the journalist’s willingness to die for freedom of speech to be incredibly awe-inspiring, if also incredibly sad. I wonder if his (and other journalists’) sacrifice will pay off in the end? Whatever the case, may he rest in peace – his fight, at least, is done.
