"Democracy is a seed that needs water, sun, good weather, time and constant care and it is only then that we can enjoy its flowers, fruits and its shade. It is only then that we can lay under its shade and enjoy its beauty for years to come. Democracy cannot be imported, planted or forced..."

David Etebari, discussing previous unsuccessful attempts to force democracy in the Middle East.

The anquish in the face of a good man who has done a very difficult but just deed, is softened by the tears of happiness of those who are freed from the yolk of tyranny. Then, the sterness of the good man's face is changed for in his heart he knows the love of G-d.

Is it time to bring the media world into 4 dimensional interactive communication or is it time to bring 4 dimensional interactive communication into the media world? Either way, it would probably solve the boring television syndrome. I think the quiet fellow whose ancestor invented algebra would enjoy that concept. :)

Dear King Abdullah and Queen Rania,
My prayers - from San Francisco - not wrapped in any Islamic, Christian or Muslim cloak - just open prayer sitting on the Pacific Ocean - a great carrier of currents and life - are with you today.

You have both been bright lights in the emerging world of Islam and the Middle East. It is my prayer that power you have shared continues. It is my belief it will.

You have both been voices of sanity, peace and prosperity in the Middle East; of moderate change, with the wisdom to know when accelerated change is required, and it is my prayer your wisdom to know when to PUSH and when to lay back and let momentum take its course, continues. It is my belief your wisdom shall prevail over difficult times, not just in Jordan or the Middle East, but all over the world.

I believe the King is right: there are many issues that need to be accelerated to meet a rapidly changing global landscape, and domestic, social and environmental problems in Jordan - as in many regions. It is my prayer you find the solutions you require to enact those changes as quickly as possible. Time really is of the essence in the world today and those nations that delay positive changes will find themselves falling behind faster than at any time in history.

It is my prayer that those in your government continue to support you, looking around at many other governments in the region, and recognizing you both for the wisdom and care you've brought to Jordan. I will not judge Egypt or Tunisia, the Saudi's or Bahrain for their smart or flawed plans, rather if I may, I shall judge what you two have done with the limited resources you have, and as a teacher, I would give you both A's. I pray you continue to utilize your intelligence to "accelerate positive change" in the future.

That doesn't mean you have been perfect - who could be? Who ever was? It doesn't mean you will not make mistakes in the future. Only a person or government or corporation who tries nothing new makes no mistake - except the most grave mistake of being rigid and not changing with the times. As long as you try new things to solve new problems, and accept your mistakes graciously, and enjoy your victories with the same intelligent humility you both seem to emulate, your reign in Jordan should - and will - continue for the rest of my life - and hopefully yours as well.

It doesn't mean the people of Jordan will always be happy with your decisions: Abraham Lincoln clearly reminded us "You can please some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the people all of the time." No matter what decisions you make, someone - even me - will think perhaps you should have tried something else. Certainly there is no shortage of opinions in the world today.

But regardless of any else's opinion, the only thing that matters at night when you go to sleep, is you did the best you could with the resources you had, and in the morning, with the new sunrise, you ask yourself "What can we do today that is smarter and more enlightened, more effective and more efficient than what we did yesterday?" and "Do we have the tools and resources to do that?" and "How long will it take and how much progress will it bring?"

And then after analyzing your limited time each day - and even on this Earth - and prioritizing your tasks (certainly we all wish we could do more every day than is practical) - then my prayer is your list of priorities will bring the highest standard of living for your people, for you and your family, and continue to serve as a guiding light for many people who turn to Jordan for enlightenment under tough circumstances, but still you both shine on.

Congratulations. Hang in there. The ride is going to get a little bumpy - but you will prevail. I believe that.
