|Barefoot in Cairo|
We weren't together for very long but I loved every minute I spent with you. I experienced so many new and wonderful things during our short love affair. You took me on adventures. You showed me how beautiful the world is. You made me change the way I think about lots of things. I miss you all of the time. I've thought about learning your language and going back to you for longer than just three short weeks.
I don't normally keep up with the news, but last night I read the reports about you. I nervously clicked "play" on a news clip and I recognized you immediately.
You were so angry and violent. That is not how I remember you. That is not how I want you to be.
And tonight, you've disappeared from cyberspace completely. This scares me for you. I want the best for you. You are beautiful and I hate watching all of this, especially since I am unable to do much of anything.
Egypt, I am thinking about you tonight. I'm thinking of the people I met and the friends I made while I was there and I am wondering where they are right now.
I fear it's all going to get worse before it gets better. But I guess all we can do is see what happens tomorrow.

That's all I've got for tonight. I'll go back to being funny soon, I promise.
