Dorothy, we are still waiting for you to come home

Yesterday marked two weeks that my friend Dorothy has been missing.
Syrian officials have said they deported Dorothy to Iran on May 1. But her family still has not heard from her. And there is no confirmation from Iran on this.
You can keep up with any and all updates on Facebook, Twitter or even the Al Jazeera web site, where Dorothy works.
When Dorothy worked at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer she wrote an article titled, The Cloth of Islam.
Dorothy wore an Islamic hijaab--a full-body outer cloak for three days in Seattle and on a train to and in Vancouver, B.C. and on a flight back.
Reading this article by Dorothy and her experiences is a great and amazing representation of the kind of journalist she is and the kind of person she is.
How many of us would have the guts to do something like that? Yea, I know I wouldn't.
