I just saw a guy on the BBC world news being interviewed in Egypt—and he kept yelling into the camera—WE ARE EGYPTIANS!
He paused after he yelled this—each time he said it. As if he wanted to go on with an interview or say something profound. But each time—like his mouth was working on it's own—he'd yell again—WE ARE EGYPTIANS!
It was like—he had to keep saying it, over and over and over again—each time, pausing with the realization: what he is saying now—it means something *different* than it did just a few hours ago. It means something he's never had a chance to think about. It means something *new*. It means something he's never thought of before. It means to be free.
What must that feel like? What must that feel like to create a new country—a new way of being a citizen—with the arms of freedom wrapped around you?
This is still how I'm feeling only x100. I WANT TO KNOW WHAT FREEDOM FEELS LIKE!
