Food Break: Egypt

I don't feel like talking about chewy granola bars and homemade mac n cheese.

EGYPT has been on my mind. I feel sad and helpless. I'm consumed with stories of courage, brutality, perseverance, and strength. I have no eloquent words. But this woman does:

"Do not fear what has blown up. If you must, fear the unexploded."

There are a lot of women I aspire to be like. One of them is Suheir Hammad. If you haven't already read her works or youtube'd her doing some slam poetry, jump on it. Personally, ZaatarDiva is my favourite of her published works.

Egypt, you leave me feeling ashamed and strangely hopeful. Where will you go from here?
