EGYPT: REMEMBERING THE DEAD

This is merely a little post, because I am crying. But to those who come here on my little post in the digital wastelands, I ask, no, beg of you to go here, to this website called 1000 memories. It has been set up to remind us all that freedom comes at a price, and that this price is almost all the time paid by those who are innocent, who were doing nothing wrong, who were beaten, who were shot, who were killed to preserve the mummified remains of systems that have leeched on them.

If you have the time, if you have only a moment, I want to ask you to go there and say a prayer, if you have one, a thought, if you have one. And make sure that they are not forgotten.

Thank you.
