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.
