….when their brains were thinking outside the dark box that mubarak’s regime enforced on them for 30 yrs, their hearts were fully engaged in a revolution that showed the world the most inspiring images of courage, creativity, faith, compassion, and of course, an amazing sense of humor.   I think Egyptians took ‘thinking outside the box’ to a whole new level.

On Feb 11th, 2011, the people of Egypt wrote an amazing chapter in history.    Never before have I been this much proud of being an Egyptian.

الشعب العظيم….أسقط النظام

it should be more like “Think outside the SQUARE”! Get it? although the box is good as well :)

but yes Egyptians have definitely made history. People all around the world are taking them as revolutionary role models. I don’t know if you’ve seen pictures of americans here in wisconsin when they had their own little uprise on anti-labor laws. All of their signs were things like, “revolt like an Egyptian”, “We want to be free, like Egypt”..

Also, nisooo did you make that Tahrir typography piece? I actually recently just made one about Islam. I know it’s “in” these days. Kinda cool though :) and I love your color choices…

Yep, Egyptians made history — as usual!
You also reminded me of CNN’s comment: “For the first time, we see people make a revolution and then clean the streets afterwards.” :)

“just hope whatever happens next makes us even prouder”
Ameeen to that! The referendum was the first test, and more & more to come.
