We ♡ Egypt

Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States (1882-1945)

Our thoughts and prayers are with Egyptians as they vote in their first "real" presidential election today and tomorrow. It is an exciting time; but it is also a worrying time because the education system has failed 80% of the electorate. May whoever wins the presidency work to safeguard Egypt's nascent democracy, work to remedy her other social, economic and political problems, and not work simply to get re-elected.
