#1736- I did something today I have only done when moving. I emptied the refrigerator of all its contents and cleaned it. Beautiful.
#1737 - Because of my question of the day Wed, I found out that Elizabeth Gilbert is in town tonight speaking for FREE. I learned this 3 hours before the event. I am grateful that I am single and childless and often without plans because this made it easy to get ready to go.
For transportation reasons I never made it. However, I sat in the living room peacefully for an hour waiting thinking I might, and thought I was a little disappointed, I was more so grateful.
#1738 - My brother thanked me for just listening when he was contradictory the other day.
#1739 - This morning I heard the news around 8:30am. It said the Egyptian military had agreed to end the state of emergency if the protestors stopped. I learned the "state of emergency" has been in effect in Egypt for 30 YEARS (as has the current president). "It bans more than three members of a political group meeting without permission." The commentator said that though this was a step, what the protestors really wanted was the President to step down and it didn't look like that was going to happen.
Then at 7pm my brother asked me if I heard about Egypt today, "Yeah a little." I responded.
The EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT STEPPED DOWN! AFTER THE PEOPLE DEMANDED IT AND THE MILITARY HELD RESTRAINT ON THEIR WEAPONS. Here are the simple and beautiful demands if you want to read them.
#1740 - It has been a "leaderless movement". There isn't a certain name or face that made this happen, it came from the people.
