Egypt on my mind

I have nothing but fond memories of it's people and I am horrified by what is happening there right now, at this very moment. We are all witnesses to Mubarak's brutality and silence is consent. As a born German, I've learned long ago that "Wer schweigt ist schuld".

(As a woman and feminist, I wish with all my heart that all my sisters will be freed from the restraints of religious fundamentalism and oppresssion. For me, personally, what this woman is wearing is unacceptable and I hope that her two daughters will never be subjected to look like their mother. Only by choice, which I can't imagine)
