I didn't really have any plans for new year's this year, not that I ever really have plans for that day, I usually spend it with my family, or in my room reviewing and reflecting on the year that has passed and setting goals for the year to come. This year I went to bed early, only to wake up to the worst news ever.
Some idiot- some worthless, insane, ignorant idiot decided to kill people.
Some ignorant, backward minded person decided to kill innocent people. To bomb a car near the entrance of a church when people were praying inside. And I know that regardless of what the person thought, or who told him to do it, or anything, there is no way this person is going anywhere but straight to hell.
This Earth knows no justice, or at least this country doesn't, yet there is a deity that wouldn't accept such inhumanity.
I will not mention anything about the sectarianism this has sparked, because generally, the country, the people have grown more passive, more aggressive and more backward minded than ever...close minded, too. Things were as bad, in terms of bombings and attacks based on religion, in the eighties and early nineties, but shouldn't we be going forward?
One thing I don't get is how and why is the minister of interior still in office...I really, really don't get it. But then again there is a lot of things that I will never get about this country.
I also don't get why Egyptians should need protection among fellow Egyptians, I don't get how someone should need intensified security within the borders of their own country.
This is heartbreaking.
It is also heartbreaking that you get little children asking each other in the playground whether they are Christian or Muslim. This is sad. So very sad. We are going through a process of social retardation. Social and state retardation.
And you wonder why the well educated leave? Why those who truly care leave? You wonder why those who have a sense of patriotism tend to lose it? You wonder why those who love the country are always let down? You wonder why those who ever wanted to make a change turn into nothing but a figure added to your GNP? And why even the slightest glimpse of hope fades away so easily?
Well, now you know why.
This country broke my heart, and only those you love can break your heart.
