The Egyptian People

I just had a minor nervous breakdown over following the news a little too closely over the past week. Too many terrible youtube clips of people being killed; too many reports of missing persons.

So just to remind everybody for a moment of who the Egyptians really are, I borrowed this picture taken yesterday by Twitter user @NevineZaki in Cairo:

These are Christian Egyptians, forming a protective circle around their Muslim brothers and sisters during their prayer. It's at Al-Tahrir Square yesterday, during the protests.

Beautiful, isn't it?

That's Egypt.
