I am passionate about

<p>As we all know, some Arab countries made a revolution on their rollers because of the bad way they controlled the country. As a result, my concern issue is the way that all the world countries in general and the Middle East countries in special that suffer from dictatorial governments, can reach to their freedom and to live in a democratic country that respect all the people and achieve justice. I think if the people live in a democratic country, they can build a successful society that has a good economic, good education and modern social services but living in a dictatorial country leads to unstable society and therefore to violence. Nowadays many countries and most of the Arab countries live under dictatorial systems that cause us to stay in the "third world" and prevent the societies from rising up and developing their countries. I think this issue is a global issue that needs researches and solutions because if we find a solution, we will be able to rise up again and to be in the "first world." As the Syrian Revolution started, I became a member in the "Revolution Cooperation Committee" to help the Syrian Youth to get their freedom.</p>
