One of my favorite scenes that pretty much epitomizes Brian's commitment to the role.

You're wrong. It does take courage and a lot of it.

We, here in the Western world take certain things for granted, things that could get you imprisoned or tortured (yes, lashes are a form of torture).

I come from what's considered a conservative family. Though my family would be considered liberal by Saudi standards, I understand the dichotomy of thought and understand what it's like to put on one face for family and to put another completely different one on for friends.

It's not easy to just leave and never come back; to leave everything and everyone you know behind. It's essentially starting a new life.

It also takes courage to break out of the norms of an oppressive society, to see that things just aren't right and that it is wrong. Many people in those authoritative cultures are groomed from birth to accept the their life.

I wish you luck, you sound like an intelligent and fascinating person.

Congestive heart failure survivor here. I was given two months to live when I left the hospital. That was almost 8 years ago. While my heart hasn't recovered, I am able to do day to day tasks and live a nearly full life (I can't do many of the things that I used to love doing).

Keep up the fight. I know that cancer is a different challenge, especially since my problem really didn't involve a lot of pain. You can do it. I know what it's like to lie there at night trying to sleep knowing that I might not wake up the next morning.

My key is to live with the problem instead of dying from it. It's a subtle yet important perspective, at least to me.

I would also like to say that, since I am considerably older, I just think it's incredibly unfair that someone so young has to suffer through something like that. At this point, I wouldn't wish bad health on my worst enemy.

I wish you peace and good health. I expect to hear that you are back and living a normal life soon. :)
