"EGYPTIANS CAMPED OUT IN CARIO. FOR AMERICANS IMAGINE THIS BEING THE RELEASE OF A NEW APPLE PRODUCT IF APPLE SOLD FREEDOM"

This is my current status on Facebook and also the view I have toward a particular foreign vs. domestic relationshsip.

Today alone, I have seen the Egyptians rally for change like a swarm of honeybees over tv screens. I have heard numbers that ranged from 250,000 to 2 million. ´╗┐The movement in Cairo has now been said to have spread to Alexandria. I can only feel for the people, and respect them for how selflessly and limitlessly they are willing to go for their change.

I remember being in my apartment in Japan, streaming Barack's spech from Cairo in the summer of 2009. I was invigorated, alive, and certain that seeing the world was the perfect supplement to my textbook education.

These are the moments that revolutions are made of. I've always admired how in foreign countries people will take to the streets for what they believe. In America we are complacent as much as we are fear-injected.

What do you stand for?
