Well, it’s nearing midnight in Georgia and CNNInternational is broadcasting live from a rally in Tbilisi. Tens of thousands of Georgian supporters are standing in the square waving flags from Georgia as well as other flags representing those who support the Georgian perspective in this conflict.
Standing on the stage with the Georgian president is President Yushchenko of Ukraine. And also the president of Estonia. I’m not sure who else was standing there.
This reminds me of the Orange Revolution here when the Georgian president joined Yushchenko on Independence Square here in Kyiv. But we hadn’t just survived bomb blasts, missile strikes or tanks roaring through the streets here.
I applaud them all for literally taking a stand. And I continue to pray for all of those in decision-making roles…
UPDATE: Also on the stage were presidents of Lithuania, Latvia and Poland.
