Good Morning, God!
Egypt needs HELP! We all need help. Our World needs HELP!
People in Power want to stay in power and do not go quietly. And transitions are particularly hard if there has been NO CHANGE for many years.
The Winds of Change can blow many places — places that are scary for those who value stability and predictability.
It seems that China has been censoring the news coming out of Egypt and before that Tunisia. I can understand why. Anarchy and chaos are scary, God. Very scary. Yet, the People in Charge of Stability seem — mostly — to be unable to resist the temptation of Great Wealth.
Ah, the plot thickens, doesn’t it, God. Because extremes of wealth and extremes of poverty don’t make for long term stability. Then, too, there is the problem of what is DONE in Your Name. Or, perhaps, the problem is What is Not Done — in Your Name.
Sigh. I am sighing God — sorrowing — longing for a world of Compassion and Freedom. The difficulty with Freedom is that it needs to be BALANCED with Human Rights. That is, regimes Old Ones or New Ones, must protect the rights of Women and Children. And that is where the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt may fall short. An Islamist regime in Egypt? A moderate regime? The trouble is Moderates get hit from ALL SIDES!
So, PLEASE GOD, send Your Spirit of Compassion upon the People of Egypt — upon us ALL. Help us to FIND A WAY toward greater Human Rights, greater Freedom, and greater Understanding and mutual Respect. PLEASE!
