Democracy in action

February 1st, 2011 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Issues | Personal

I happen to work in a job that allows me to watch TV all day. I am a news junkie and a politics junkie and I get to be surrounded by it.

Over the past few days that has meant that I have had the opportunity to watch what has been happening in Egypt as it happens. This morning I had the opportunity to watch a reported 2 million people gathered in Cairo to find or their rights as citizens. I got to watch them pray together.

It was breathtaking.

It has reminded me that no matter what people say, you can be a patriot and still fight against your government. That voices together can be heard by the world. That right is right.

That I am lucky to have a voice.
