I am a Sudanese optimist. This blog is a literary melting pot of all the diverse ideas that I can cognitively recall and write down– I promise I will not be biased against any of those ideas, even when they sound like Sarah Palin’s verbal diarrhea, circa 2008 elections. In this blog, no topic is off limits.It must be noted that I fancy sarcasm, irony, and controversy. Why did I start blogging? Because “Verba volant, sed scripta manent.”

    Sudanese Refugee Day
    Calling all Sudanese and all Friends, to commemorate the brave helpless ones, who stood against the riot police in a cold winter night of 29th December 2005, demanding a listening ear for their fair demand for rightful and adequate living in their forced migration from Sudan.. We should commemorate …those martyrs; Men, Women and Children; who raised the voice against unjust and awful treatment.. Egypt is not blamed, as their resources are limited and unexpandable.. It is the bloody Sudanese regime that forced the poor to live homeless, women to sleep in the streets, and kids to got slaughtered..Let’s make 29th Dec a day to remember..
    The Sudanese Refugee Day..

    I’m a senior graphic designer, and I’m doing my thesis project about the “misperception of Sudan”. Going through through your blog, made me think about your point of view about this topic.
    In my point of view i think that Sudan needs its own way to tell its own stories, carve its own image. Begin finding solutions, deciding contents and context, and become capable of competing with media and stereotypes, to improve the African image.

    I am a photojournalist who has spent a lot of time in Sudan and love the country! I am having dinner with Dr. Akec Khoc tomorrow night. I have enjoyed listening to your interviews with him. You should check out what we do help Sudan through photography. You can read about our work at http://www.silentimages.org or pick up my book, Voices of Sudan. Thanks for all you do for Sudan! What a beautiful country!

    Hey “The Sudanese Optimist”
    Just a quick note, as a long time reader (found you on Twitter, just so you know where your traffic is coming from) and first time commenter that I’m loving your work. 🙂

    My name is Kate Frenson and I recently found your website about Sudan. I noticed your website some time ago and I wanted to give you some feedback. You give a chance to learn something more about Sudan. Your website is really interesting and show the modern face of your country. I think also that your website could be more popular with adding more basic and simple information. I thought that you could be interested in adding more info about culture of Sudan. It could attract more people to come and see Sudan in flesh and also make your website more popular in Google search results. Maybe you could be interested in adding a link http://www.everyculture.com/Sa-Th/Sudan.html on your website?. Please let me know what do you think about that.
    Thank you,
    Kate Frenson

    Salam! 🙂

    I’m a teenage girl of Sudanese heritage, and I really liked your blog! One thing I feel slightly ashamed about is that although I lived in Sudan nearly half my life, I know next to nothing about the actual nitty-gritty of politics, history and the general runnings of my country. Is there anywhere where I could learn more? Could you recommend good academic reads about Sudan and point me to blogs about daily life? I’m thinking of writing a research paper to do with Sudan but I realize that I simply may not have the info at my fingertips, and I’m not sure what to write about. Any suggestions?
