Tunisian Revolution

I had a chance to talked to my schoolmate in high school. We talked about anything and how our life transcend in a very special way. We had a nice chat including the places that we have been gone through. One of the places that she was visited already is the country of Tunisia. This country is located in the northern part of Africa. Its area is 165,000 square meter with an estimated population of 10.4 million people. The country was under the power of Ben Ali for 23 years...thats two decades more or less....
Her husband is still there working as a company accountant but the place is not a good place to stay right now because of the Tunisian revolution. The country is mainly operated as a republic but under the authoritarian regime of their president Ben Ali. The country is undergoing a social and political issues that resulted a very deadly protest and deadly demonstrations.
I talked to my friend for almost 2 hours and she's really worried of her husband. Her husband is making a very good money right now and they can't compromise their income over the place situation. Geese this is how our Filipino people are facing right now. Because of the recession in our country, our Filipino people fleet to the other countries to work and make their living even if its not safe. Sad!
