The New Library in Alexandria

It is late and I am tired, but I want to say that I so much want Egypt to be able to realize it’s own highest aspirations.  I see people who are so kind, so eager to please, work so hard, embody so much dignity. I feel this about every place I go, but right now it is about Egypt. The challenges, political and economic seem overwhelming even as the human spirit Keeps me ever optimistic. I will forever feel identified with the future of Egypt.

As I hear that some presumed terrorist activity has created an international alert as we all prepare to make our way home, I guess I share the simple sentiment of Rodney King, “Why can’t we all get along”?
