Reasoned: Ahmed Shihab-Eldin

'I'm lucky to have a job that allows and requires me to learn about lives and experiences of people, and I'm doing so, gaining insight into the collective human condition'
Ahmed Shihab-Eldin

With all the air pollution swirling around this election year, it is always nice to hear voices of reason on television. Whether you support Syrian Refugee's coming or not, some of the hate and scare speech is almost beyond belief. I feel at times I watching a movie, something from decades earlier before we became open and tolerant, enlightened... human. Freedom of Speech is a wonderful thing, but sadly not everyone uses this right with respect. Ahmed Shihab-Eldin certainly does and I have enjoyed in the whirlwind of crazy that is currently the news, listening to his words, and his thoughts.
