Ripples of Hope

Woke up this morning to the euphoric messages and images coming from Egypt and words simply fail to capture the pure and unadulterated joy found on those streets right now. I've always been fascinated by similar revolutions of the past, many of which occurred before I was even born. But to watch the power of the people and their efforts unfold right before my eyes has brought a whole new level of meaning to what it means to fight for change. I simply stand in awe and admiration.

There is still much work ahead but today, let's just revel in this incredibly historic moment and celebrate the unwavering resolve of the Egyptian people. Can't help but pull up one of my favourite quotes that really speaks to what we've seen in the past few weeks:

Each time a man stands for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” - Robert F. Kennedy

Here's to Egypt and a better tomorrow!
