After being taken outside, Ali discovered his wife Hadil and their 15-year-old daughter Hawra were in the backseat of the police car waiting for him. Sometime during their three-hour detainment, Ali said police called his 11-year-old son’s school to tell them to hold him because his parents had been arrested.

We give the appearance of having no idea about what we are doing. We seem to not understand our own goals and it is obvious to the world that we have no plans for accomplishing even a small portion of those mis-identified goals. We stumble (crash) around the globe completely in a fog.
