One Life...Earth...Us.

I am amazed, dazed and fucking-in-praise when a populace; neighbor and stranger-amassed, unite.

I am uplifted, elated and gifted to witness youth band side by side and rise above all that they’ve been induced to believe, and overthrow regime.
(I am empowered by a revolution when revolution composes necessary change)

I am honored from the depth of all that I am and all that I will ever be by what has transpired in Egypt.

Right now, in a way not unlike billions do on New Years Eve or when a sports team reigns, millions of people are singing and dancing together and screaming with elation in freedoms name, that, because of their determination, they may now have a chance at something that I take for granted on a daily basis.
(I am watching on a television that cost more than any of them will earn on an annual average wage.)

I dreamt I was there, apart of this splendor of humanity, overjoyed for something that I can never really comprehend NOT being apart of, being a caucasian American.

…Millions of truly beautiful souls demonstrating peacefully in-demand of an existence to merely enjoy the benefits and opportunities of an amazing Planet that may one day become ENTIRELY United.

One Life...Earth...Us.
