architecture is not justice

They have monuments to liberty
And freedom of opinion, which is well and good.
But I explained to them that
Architecture is not justice.

An excerpt from Sami al Hajj's poem, Humiliated In The Shackles

Masha'Allah ...Masha'Allah son palabras que callen en el corazon.

Encarcelaron su cuerpo pero no su mente y su corazon.

Ahh! It's probably not surprising that I too was so struck by that phrase. It's the truth in this poetry...
