Yemen; World Press Photo 2011 Winner

As much as this photo is beautiful, as much as it made me really cry because it sums up what the Yemeni nation and the rest of Arab (and non-Arab) revolutionary nations have gone through in pursuit of democracy and freedom. The picture taken by photographer Samuel Aranda wond the World Press Photo of the Year 2011 while he was on assignment for The New York Times last fall.

"People in the news", that was the category Yemen was in; wining World Press Photo 2011.

Yemen has been more explicitly winning a number of prizes since 2011. I hope this luck or .. I don't know.. will last till Yemenis gain all their goals.
