The Unknown Blogger

October 16th is officially declared “Person X Day” — and you get to pick Person X. Tell us about someone who deserves to be commemorated.

October 16th is actually Blog Action Day so I’ll pick the Unknown Blogger for the Person of the Day to be honoured. And I’m not talking just about people like me, a comfortable writer posting from my comfortable home in a  safe part of the world, but about our fellow bloggers posting from dangerous places, risking their safety to tell the world about what’s really happening in their countries, about violations of human rights, the consequences of violence, and all kind of abuses. I’m thinking also in people blogging knowing they are in risk of being prosecuted for exercising their right to free expression and even jailed for that, like some of our Chinese fellow bloggers. I’m thinking in all courageous honest bloggers that contribute to make the problems of this world more known without manipulations. I’m thinking in all bloggers who help this world communicate freely and peacefully no matter where they are.

 Daily Prompt: Honorific.
