NO! to Injustice, in any form by anyone, anywhere.

Silent no longer!

Sakteen Sakteen By Amir EID

Arab Emancipation

Gleaming pride
No fear to hide

Heads held high
Reaching the sky

Hear them roar
From shore to shore

The Egyptians have spoken
All chains forever broken

Who could have thought
Such an end to the drought

Freedom & Liberation
The birth of a Nation

A role model for all
That dictators must fall

The true emancipation
Of a proud Arab Nation

The Re-Birth of Arab Pride

Sheer elation. Indescribable admiration. A sense of pride. But most of all, awe.

They pulled it off. And how!

If you ever doubt that you can make a difference, take a leaf out of Egypt's latest papyrus. They have irrevocably changed the course of history in the Middle East!

For the past 18 days we watched, cheered & cried in desperation & frustration as the fortitude & resilience of the protesters was challenged time & time again.

The culmination of their sheer determination & national pride was inspirational.

That people of all walks of life could be so united & connected helped renew our faith not only in humanity but in our very ethnicity.

Long reputed to be Om il-Donya (Mother of the World), Egypt delivered. They have reunited Arabs with their essence and more importantly reminded us that human dignity & freedom are basic rights that we are all entitled to.

People power in the age of social media is no longer a myth. We can make a difference. Small ripples lead to huge changes.

"Yes we can" has been usurped by "Yes we did!" . Egyptian's have walked the talk and set a role model not just for Arabs but for people everywhere.

Clearly the road to Egypt's liberation from 30 years of regime abuse & corruption will take time but when 80 million people share the same vision & aspirations, they can move pyramids, literally.

Freedom Calls!
