Click on Elis speech an scroll down to "Discuss"


Elis' Bubble... or was it yours?




Remember Elis' yet clear but impressive picture of all of us being captured, ... somehow? Don't you think it's time to liberate from all of this? I do. And don't you ever think: "What shall I do? I am just David vs. Goliath" You might be right.... but what if there are some Davids, and some more, and finally a crowd? Every journey starts with the first step... who said that? Find it out and start walking, boots ( just another quote from a song :)  ) 
Take care , netizens, and get the internet back to where it belongs: TO YOU!
