Jill Is Free!

Our hearts are singing this morning, for one woman in a land we've never visited has been freed from captivity. Jill Carroll was released this morning, and despite the ongoing death and devastation in Iraq, this gives us some reason for hope.

Since we're feeling celebratory, here's some appropriate music. Abdelkader Saadoun is a UK-based Algerian musician whose album "Freedom" was a runner-up on Spin the Globe's list of Best World Music Albums of 2004.
