As French authorities are making great efforts to liberate Ingrid Bettancourt from the FARC I can't stop thinking of Guilad Shalit, another French citizen held hostage.
Ingrid was kidnapped by the FARC in 2002, today she is suffering from hepatitis and is closer to death than life itself. I'm holding my breath, hoping that the efforts will pay and that she will be surronded by her children as soon as possible. As for Galit, I wish and pray that the Israeli and French government will act soon and not wait until he is dying to try to liberate him.
Guilad was only 19 years old when he was captured by HAMAS in June 2006, his only crime was to be in the wrong place on the wrong time during his military service.
