Perhaps because I have a love of Alexandria—and especially a love of the new Library at Alexandria—that I pray for peaceful resolution very soon of the strife that beautiful country of beautiful people is enduring. Power had corrupted the very core of Egypt’s leadership, infected, as those leaders were, with the same power-damage as their backers in the US government.
The Egyptians are some of the most graceful, kind, hospitable, gentle, peaceful, long-suffering members of a lost nobility I have met so far in my life. They deserve better than the US-trained and sponsored thugs who walked over them and treated them with extreme ill will.
Alexandria, and Mother Egypt, I pray for you. I pray for your peace with freedom. I pray for your life, and your River. I pray for your deliverance.
