How the Travesty in Egypt Can Bring People Together

When there are problems or challenges in a Country, the details of the event can travel at the speed of light. Things can get out pretty quickly through Twitter, Facebook and more. Currently, people are fighting for their freedom in Egypt and some people have lost their lives as a result.

In Egypt, people are now bold enough to stand up to their leader and say, we don’t like how we have been treated in this country and we want to put an end to it, now! They are demanding that the president be removed from his position, while he is saying I will remove everybody from government except himself. However, the people in Egypt want the President to leave from office immediately.

This crisis in Egypt can help unite people in Egypt and all over the world. I will explain why…

I read a posting on twitter yesterday that stated the Christians would watch the backs of Muslims while they pray. Christians and Muslims have the opportunity to not judge each other, but to love and support each other. They can first do this by focusing on their similarities, which are Freedom for themselves and their families and their communities.

Not only should they get their freedom, but they should examine how women are treated in the country. This is a time for women to open up and discuss their perceptions of their status in Egypt. Is it desirable? What changes would they like to see? How do would they like to contribute to their country in a different way?

Moreover, they should let go of the past and their past hurts and wounds. They should acknowledge them but move to a space of love and forgiveness. This cannot be done by keeping their thoughts in the past.

People around the world should create thoughts of unity for the people in Egypt and gain from their courage and persistence.
