The earlier post on Egypt and a Peaceful Revolution ended as a question, well, for obvious reasons. The crackdown on the anti-government protesters demonstrates it was just too much to hope that Egypt’s uprising and burgeoning revolution would succeed peacefully. The emergence of violence brought to mind a quote from Mahatma Gandhi:
When I despair, I remember that all throughout history the way of truth and love always won.
There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall — think of it, always.
Also inspiring is Nicholas Kristof’s reporting on Amal and Minna, two Egyptian women who faced the crackdown armed only with faith, hope and the power of ideas.
May Egypt find peace, free from the causes of suffering.
