the Future …

Protestors at the US Embassy in Cairo

I find this picture disturbing.  They are boys … young men …   They are the future of Egypt.  That thought plagues me.

The riots in the Middle East continue today.  As far as I know, the American Embassy in Cairo is holding steady and riot police are doing everything they can to fend off protesters.  Tomorrow (Friday, 9/14) will be a tell of what’s to come.  Morsi has released statements giving his approval of the protest, but, of course, he denounces the violence.  He has actually encouraged and called for mass protests tomorrow after Mosque lets out.  Things in Maadi remain quiet and we intend on spending the weekend with some good food, movies, and friends.  As I wrote yesterday, I have complete confidence in the Marine Guard and RSO protecting our embassy and their personnel.
