“A year of Dreaming ... suffering ... Hope .. Death and Life .. Challenges and Obstacles .. Drama and Tragedies ... but those brave people will continue till the end .. I believe in this .. they wont stop till the end ...” (Thank you +Suhaib Shekfeh )
'We are condemned to hope. And what's happening now can't be the end of history.'" Saadallah Wannous, a Syrian playwright, once wrote. And that's exactly what keeps us going. Hope.
One year ago, we were certain the almost impossible dream of a Syrian revolution would have a heavy price. Even so, people were struck by the atrocities and massacres that surpassed their imagination. Quite a few people believed that the western educated ophthalmologist would retake the route of his late father of crushing dissent. People believed the handsome, young president would defend global human rights. They believed he would answer the demands of the people, and undertake a serious reform plan to transform Syria into an inclusive democratic state where citizens' rights were respected and all political views could compete peacefully.
We believed he would win our hearts, but he chose not to.
In his first speech on 30 March 2011, Bashar al-Assad resorted to the means of his father, and no one can blame him. He had spent much of his life as a son of Hafez al-Assad who had killed tens of thousands of his own people as well. Why would the few years he lived in England make him any different? Why would he be any different from Seif al-Islam Gaddafi, who studied in England as well?
Bashar al-Assad blames the aspirations of his people on a foreign conspiracy. The conspiracies inflated into cosmic conspiracies because everyone or anything that goes against him is a conspiracy. He perfected the Dictators 101 pocketbook that expertly plays on the differences, divisions and fears of everyone inside and outside Syria.

Vision of the future:
“The main opposition Syrian National Council (SNC) outlined … its vision for a post-Bashar al-Assad Syria, proposing an interim presidential council of national leaders and a truth and reconciliation committee.
In a copy of his speech, SNC leader Burhan Ghalioun called for the continuation of the uprising until Assad was ousted or handed over power as per an Arab League plan.
After that, Ghalioun called for the “formation of a presidential council composed of national leaders and the formation of a transitional government of political, military and technocratic figures who have not fought against the revolution.”
He also proposed the creation of a council that would address the abuses of the Assad regime and prevent any political or sectarian reprisals.
“The committee will work to reconcile and restore the sense of nationalism and human values that have been lacking during this crisis,” he said.
The transitional period would end with elections to a parliament that would draw up a new constitution. *

On 15 March 2011, protesters took to the streets in the southern Syrian city of Deraa - but within weeks the peaceful calls for freedom turned violent amid a bloody government crackdown. Three years on, the conflict shows no sign of ending and has become a grim way of life for those living through it, as Lina Sinjab reports from Damascus.
