Wee frustrations

I've been using Facebook since March.  I find it to be a useful tool, a way of keeping in touch with friends.

But I could not access Facebook today. I began to think that it was "the end of the world".

It took me about three hours and many "tries" before the system was restored.

I felt to be so frustrated.

I believe that it was a very self centered feeling on my part, especially  as I consider the brave souls who live under oppressive regimes, and who rely on Facebook and other social networks as a means to express their longings for political and economic freedoms.

My lack of access to Facebook was no more that a "wee frustration".  Theirs is often a matter of life and death.
