  1. Tragic. Hope and pray she and the many other innocent good people are released soon

  2. You can be sure this has a traumatic emotional impact on her children. This is the second time she has been arrested, and was separated from her children the first time for fourteen months. The struggle for freedom needs people like Susan Tebyaniyan. She and her family are both the indomitable, faithful, self-sacrificing heroes of this struggle and its victims. May the victory of love, compassion and unity come more quickly. May light be born in the darkness of ignorance, fear and arrogance.
