I havent watched the news in quite a few days... It's mainly because watching it makes me depressed... But Ive been hearing a lot about what's happening in Egypt right now... I plan to read the internet for some updates but I havent done that yet. Can anyone update me please? what is the root of all that's happening there? I think it's really gone chaotic... I do hope for the fast resolution of their problems... I pray for their peace.

There's this dictator, Mubarak, he's like Ferdinand Marcos and has ruled in Egypt for over 30 years. He's also really corrupt I hear, so the people decided to protest against him, to finally kick him out. But I heard from some of my friends whose relatives live there, that it's really scary there- there are lots of killings; so they just lock their houses and stay inside..

When I think of places you see on the news now destroyed by protesters in Cairo are places that a year and a half ago I was walking, I can only grieve. In Cairo I stayed at a hostel right next to the Egyptian Museum, which has now been broken and the two mummies have been destroyed.I remember on our driver in Cairo, Wahid, who answered all my questions I'm curious and I said that right now, Egypt is one of three undercover Securitate. He told me He told me he does not believe that will start when President Hosni Mubarak not to be president (31 years leads Egypt), and if that happens, then power will certainly be taken over by his son.In the past 30 years, the time of Mubarak,Egypt's population has nearly doubled and the average age in Egypt is under 25 years.Egypt is thus a young nation with the chance of the future. What they want is freedom Egyptians at this time they have always hoped to win it, but as it began the revolt did not think it will have a very good ending for someone.Egyptians are special people were so happy in their shortcomings,so I envy you! Now I suffer for them if they were our Revolution(Revolution of 1989, Romania), and pray to God to defend what's wrong ! Peace!
