Anna Day is a student, activist, advocate, friend, and firecracker. Her causes are her passions and when one gets her talking about them, she does so with a contagious level of excitement and involvement.
When she heard that Egypt was on the brink of a revolution, she knew she had to be a part of it. And so she headed to Cairo.
I had the honor of hearing her story and documenting it for Peace x Peace here.
One of my questions for Anna was what gives her hope about the protest movement. What gives me hope is that there are young people like her - people who care, who are not afraid, who will be part of movements and notions greater than themselves, and who will proudly, boldly and humbly re-tell the story.
I do not have a story right now. My story is that of Egypt. Watch it unfold:
- Boston Globe Big Picture images of the protests that leave me speechless.
- Washington Post and Human Rights Watch report that much of the looting was performed by paid government 'thugs'.
- The FP provides a harrowing account of the afternoon that brought the end to non-violence.
