Rise Up!

"Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed." -Martin Luther King, Jr.

Al Jazeera put up a great time-line on the uprising in Tunisia.

I am so inspired by the way Tunisians have come together to overthrow the oppressive regime that has been in power for 30 years. I pray that they will be able to establish a peaceful and stable government soon. I know it will be a long road, but I hope that with the efforts of everyday citizens, there will be progress in Tunisia and conditions will improve for their people.

God bless the Tunisian people as they fight for their rights!

Agreed. Their movement has definitely inspired Egyptians to take a stand too.
