The Current Plight

Another currency floating happened this morning moving the EGP from 24.7 to 26.7. I feel paraplegic unable to project the future or how starving most of us will be. Everyone in a position is held accountable for this plight and the humanitarian crisis we all face now. It was indeed our slogan “Bread, Freedom, and Social justice” in January 2011 not to get to the verge of destruction, not to transgress asking for food or out of fear of death. Despotism begets nothing but anger and justice from the mobs.

The situation is unbearable in Egypt now. I am not selfish but deep down I don’t care much about saving money or making calculations for tomorrow as I feel I will not stay much here. I feel grateful for the last decade for being a firm guru allowing me to gain more knowledge and master another language. For their veneer as an insurmountable hindrance to a blessing to another gate. My people are reliant on the relics of our ancestors bragging all the time of lineage, but life does not tarry with yesterday and today what matters only. Education illuminates us and helps us make a living not the opposite. Glad for snatching myself away from ignorance, parochialism, and laziness.

One thought on “The Current Plight

  1. It sounds like you are feeling a sense of hopelessness and frustration with the current economic and political situation in Egypt. It can be difficult to see a path forward when facing such challenges, but it is important to remember that change is possible. Education is a powerful tool that can help individuals improve their own circumstances and create positive change in their communities. It is also important to remember that you are not alone in facing these challenges, and that working together and supporting one another can help bring about positive change.
