The Morning After

Forgive me this one time for writing something that may sound a bit political. I don't usually express my views, but this morning is special.

The Morning After.

Quiet in my neighborhood after fireworks until 3:00 a.m. We'll see what the day brings. Might be out of here sooner than later, maybe not. The next few days will be telling. I like what this guy (in the following paragraph) has to say for the most part to the rest of the democratic world. My own country was a new form of an old idea when it was founded and there was much argument in the first few year as to what it should look like. It took us 80 years and a civil war to figure it out. Some still are convinced we haven't. Nice that those people have the right to feel that way and express it. Maybe Egypt can sort things out sooner than 80, maybe they can’t, but I have no time for people who write Egypt off after less than 3. Hard to say what will happen with all the problems facing the world in general and the influences and agendas from within and without. Call what happened what you like; a coup, a vote by overwhelming participatory consensus. I personally remember reading something in some document in grade school about when a people feel they are living under unbearable tyranny that they have a right and obligation to act...Good luck Egypt.

 

Hussein Marei: Manager at Marei Orchard and Nursery says this morning:

 

We have proven the will of the people is stronger than the theories or the rigid structures and paradigms that analysts use to look at things.. Yes the military ousted the President but not without the rallying of 30 million or more before they can do it... Yes the military suggested a road map but not without making sure that civilian involvement is the only way forward... Yes we overthrew a democratically elected government but it was the people that put them there in the first place... Yes what we did defies your understanding of democracy because we are creating is something entirely new; a lesson to be taught to any leader who goes against popular will a lesson to be taught in history and probably for your own comfort snuggled into a cozy paradigm your minds can wrap around...truly now or later with this kind of passion we will have a government united and representative of all people which will set a standard to aspire to and believe in... Thank you for the history Egypt.
