Since I was born and raised in Egypt I saw things that never made sense and yet they were taken as if they are laws of nature or divine. For example: why do guys check out a woman’s back always while she is passing by whether she is wearing a mini skirt or she is veiled ? Why when there is an accident all the cars passing stop by, take a 5 minutes look and then continue with their way? aren’t these people in a hurry as I am in the morning to reach work in time? Feels almost as if they go around the streets only to watch accidents ! In marriage, why does the guy pay for everything and has to have at least 100,000 bucks to start his life ( that’s beside buying the apartment of course) ? and why does the girl have to listen to the guy : “don’t meet this” and “don’t go out with that” while he can do whatever he wants without being questioned ? does it have to do with the money he paid , liked he owns her now? put that beside strange driving, uneducated people being in the spot treated like scientists while true scientists are in the obscure, corruption in the government including police etc. etc. etc..
I know many of you will tell me that the reason why this happened is the government but people I tell you : Where does the government come from ? where does the police come from ? they’re all made out of you , people. All the things you teach to your kids they come out in life and apply it there and that’s what these people applied there so the revolution shouldn’t be in Tahrir Square and shouldn’t be in the streets only. They should be in yourselves and should be in your houses.
