One cannot help but be aware of events unfolding in Egypt at the moment. Having visited the country several years ago I instantly fell in love with the country and it’s people. A country that is so rich in history, art, and culture that it has influenced various parts of Western Culture for the last 2000 years.

The fact that the Cairo and other cities in the country are under siege greatly concern me especially when the main spots of violence are happening within the bounds of the Egyptian Museum and the Library in Alexandria.

I am greatly inspired by those Egyptians who have put politics aside to try and protect these two great institutions with sometimes nothing more than their bare hands.

I sincerely hope that the Egyptian people gain for themselves a true democracy that benefits all.


  1. Oh yeah I was watching some footage in the news just a few hours ago is really tight the prayers go for them and I hope the best for them its such a rich cousin went last year and she was absolutely stunned and when I saw the pictures I was too...just beautiful and magical country


  2. I've always wanted to go to Egypt, having fallen in love with Egyptian History in my History of Costume Class in College. Nice post

  3. The whole thing makes me sick with worry and concern. I hope this gets worked out without the Mullahs taking over and grinding Egypt into the Dark Ages. Reggie

  4. Yes we can only hope. I'm not optimistic though.

  5. Hello All, We can only hope that the revolution taking place now is one that benefits all people in Egypt regardless of religion or politics!
