inspires Middle East neighbors and others

"Give me a place to stand and a lever long enough, and

I will move the world."

                        -- Archimedes

"We cannot hold a torch to light another's path

without brightening our own." 

                        -- Ben Sweetland


     Egyptians, their neighbors, and others globally are lighting one's another's paths.
     The Citizens' Century is coming to life among Egyptian women, men, and youth, beginning 25 January 2011 into February.
     The people are increasingly defining the "no" and the "yes" of their preferred future.
     Giving voices and faces to Egyptian courage and stories of evolution is a way others on Earth have been supportive.

     Sout Al Horeya (The Voice of Freedom) is a music video filmed, edited, and recorded during two days of the peaceful protests in Tahrir Square last week.
     The creative Egyptian team included videorapher Moustafa Fahmy, a 1999 participant of Seeds of Peace --
     Despite losing two video cameras to police, they never gave up.
     The song has received over 900,000 views on YouTube the first week since its release 10 February 2011, when it was one of the 100 most-watched videos on the site.
