Signs from Tahrir

Signs: If the possessions were seized…

Signs: Happy Spring Egypt!

Happy spring, Egypt! My country, today we are celebrating your liberation from the hand of a corrupt ruler, who had a clique of thieves around him that thought that you were a place where anything goes or a private estate.

The people are the sailor that could take the wheel, saving the nation before it drowns, leading it to the shore of safety. The people don’t trust any body any more. Honorable people are becoming thieves, and the thieves are pretending to be honest. We really need miracles, not just one.
