A Dissident’s Note to His Wife

“She cannot be present today, but I still want to tell you, my sweetheart, that I’m confident that your love for me will be as always.

Your love is sunlight that transcends prison walls and bars, stroking every inch of my skin, warming my every cell, letting me maintain my inner calm, magnanimous and bright, so that every minute in prison is full of meaning… My love is hard, sharp, and can penetrate any obstacles. Even if I am crushed into powder, I will embrace you with the ashes.”

From The Guardian.

    I am sad for this dissident and moved to tears for his strength and resolve to not give in to despair. Love is a great gift, sometimes capable of transcending such horrors, and I hope for the best possible outcome to his story.
