Just a few of the images I found on the internet of the demonstrations. The particular site I found these on is "http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2011/01/protest_spreads_in_the_middle.html". You can go here for more dramatic pictures.
Well, if any of you have been watching the news, you know what is going on here in Egypt, and in the Middle East. My husband has been predicting this would happen for a long time. Food prices are so outrageous, so many people can not find jobs, and wages are just unrealistically low. Can't say I blame the people here for the demonstrations. We cancelled school last Tuesday because it was known people were supposed to start protesting, but our principal had us come to school on Wednesday. We ended up sending everyone home early because the protests started again. Home again today (Thursday) because we just don't know what's going to happen. Friends of ours have said these demonstrations could go on for weeks. We'll see. For now, we are in a pretty quiet area. No demonstrations have taken place close to us. Just pray that everything will turn out for the best, and who really knows what that will be. Even if they topple the current government, things could get worse instead of better. So, for now, we are just trusting God for the outcome.
