Do you stand with Ahmed?

By now you have probably heard about the 14 year old Muslim boy Ahmed who built a clock and took it to school. He was arrested for his efforts. When I first heard about the situation I was appalled, but that was prior to seeing the clock. The clock looked like a bomb and it should have been investigated. We live in a dangerous society and we have to be cautious and sometimes innocent people will be caught up. Could it have been handle better? probably, but Ahmed is a hero now and that is also a little disturbing. Is he a victim or a victor? Judging from the offer of a Twitter internship, a shout out from the creator of Facebook and an invite to the White House I would say he is the victor.
