We asked for change in Egypt for so long...now we have a chance...are we big enough to take it and do something?

For years we wanted change, for a long time we talked and complained about the state of our country, about the poor and the unemployed, about the emergency law and the corruption in EVERY office in the land. Now we have a chance for our voice to be heard, to make a difference, is it going to be easy? Of-course not. Some say who is good enough for this position? I am sure among 82 million; there will be one person we can trust. Surely, we cannot just simply stand with a corrupt system just because there is no alternative!

So what can we do now?

1- Support the moderate forces in our country

2- Go and exercise our rights in electing members of parliament

3- Teach each other and educate one another on the best way forward

This is OUR land, our country and we owe it to ourselves and to our kids. To simply do nothing is just not an option. For so long they sold us the lie that we cannot cope with change, that it is better to stay as we are because we are not sure about what the future might bring. My fellow Egyptians, if you stand and do nothing then you cannot come and complain that no one is listening to you or giving you your rights ever again. I would rather die free than live as a slave.
