Believers.

6 Feb

For sometime I believed that today’s generation is by far one of the best. I still do. I understood very well why. We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases; ones that scientists doubted, and cultivated the world’s greatest artists and the world’s greatest men and women; who inspired. We reached for the stars, and we acted like men. We aspired to intelligence; we didn’t belittle it; it didn’t make us feel inferior. We didn’t identify ourselves by who we voted for in the last election. We fought for moral reasons. Fought for freedom. Fought for the poor. I believe that the greatest breakout that the whole wide world witnessed, recently and still is and was in shock by the number of people who died fighting, seeking their human rights from those who took it away, feeding their greed from the People’s goods; was the revolutions that happened in the Middle east. Tunis, Egypt, Syria, Libya. All these countries, who got tired of the cruelty, unfair power.

There, you have a population who was trapped inside there own self; scared to go out and fight for their freedom, human rights. Trapped inside their fear. There, you have a government, a President who only seeks their needs, once they tasted the very first portions of satisfying their needs, greed took over them, made them sweep all the country’s goods, money, left the people of the countries suffering from a great decline in every department of human needs, a declining economy. Poverty grown worse, people became more exhausted and frustrated by their increasing needs and social injustice. Till one day they were able to break through, fought, shouted their rights, protested days and nights. They didn’t get tired. They dreamt about this moment, planned for this day. It was magical, you had men, women, kids of all ages all walking together, united, aiming for one thing, a brighter future, a better place to work and live, and most importantly a safe environment for their kids to grow up in. We were able to take down the political system that caused us grief and ache; continuous pain. And we were able to be all these things and do all these things because we were informed. By great men, men who were revered, that the first way to approach any problem, is too recognize there is one. We recognized that our country isn’t a great one anymore.

Written by an Egyptian. Proud to be. Proud of my country; Egypt. Yet, I am deeply In grief as the Muslim Brotherhood are bringing us to point zero. But, we won’t backdown, not now, never.
