Gilad Shalit

Gilad Shalit will feel worse on his 23rd birthday than you will on your 93rd.

Yesterday on Twitter, in honor of Gilad Shalit's birthday (his 3rd in captivity) there was a concerted effort to make #giladshalit a top trending topic. Despite the demise of Ted Kennedy dominating the headlines, this effort was a success, indicating just how much support there is for this 23-year-old. Unfortunately, none of that gets him out of Gaza.
