Sunday of Martyrs

leave a comment »

A7ad el Shuhada2. Today has been dubbed the Sunday of Martyrs, and as protests continue to rage in the streets, we have to feel for those who sacrificed their lives for a better Egypt. Each and everyone of them will be remembered. It takes an astonishing amount of bravery to put yourself in harms way for your country. As the violence seems to have died down the last couple days, footage of those who have died has surfaced.

What threat did that man pose? He was standing in the middle of the street, along and defenseless. It makes you cry to know the state your country is in. The police are meant to guard their citizens and keep order. They have lost their integrity, and with it they have lost the people’s respect and trust. It goes to show exactly why this police apparatus must go, and its leader with it.

A protester cries as he holds up a newspaper depicting the 'martyrs of Jan 25.'
