Quote of the Day

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest” Elie Wiesel

In light of the recent disruptions in Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen, I thought that todays quote to be particularly apt. My personal opinion on the protests in Egypt is that taking a stand on issues that underline our basic human rights is admirable. I am particularly humbled to see that many Egyptians, regardless of their political or religious inclinations, banded together to provide neighbourhood watches and look after their fellow man during looting and riots.
