Today's question is: In two days, Ahmed will celebrate eight months behind bars without access to a fair and just trial, if there is anything as such in the magical Kingdom of Bahrain. How is Ahmed and his family taking this ordeal? Do they have any faith left in the system? How will they celebrate? How will they mark this milestone? What do we tell Ahmed's eight-month-old daughter who doesn't smile? What do we tell his son, who sings the national anthem off by heart? That his nation and its topsy turvy system, which discriminates against his father, has no respect for human rights?
