Shining young girl: http://www.flickr.com/photos/andycarvin/6892501287/ @acarvin I visited the grave of Mohamed Nabbous today. It was decorated with roses, small plants and a small bowl with seeds for the birds.
The graveyard was stark, sobering; hundreds of graves from the course of the revolution.
Many of the graves were in chronological order; so many of them from the same day Mo died, March 19 2011. Visiting Mo's grave was a solemn experience, but I'm so glad I did it. I left several stones on the grave to mark my visit.
A woman knelt in front of a nearby grave. She prayed the entire time and sobbed quietly.In all directions were graves from the revolution. Some had proper tombstones. Others had a cinder block with a number scrawled on it.Mo's grave isn't far from the spot where he was killed, which basically turns out to be an ordinary intersection. Not what I pictured.
