Je reproduis ci-dessous ce très beau texte que je viens de découvrir. Son auteur : Kareem Mokhtar, un Egyptien de 17 ans, auteur du blog "Babbles of My Paradoxical Mind".
"In a box of cards lies our fate, decided by some 80 million feeble minds. For the first time in 3 decades our voices are not worthless. A celestial soul that has paid the price is watching over us from above. A once in a lifetime chance for our nation to rise from beneath the dust. This is the chance to make a difference…
Everyone has made up their minds now. The majority chose not take a stand and remain silent. Can’t blame them, the previous regime has blinded them by poverty and illiteracy. It’s too late to blame anyone now, the announcer is about to speak the final results. “People of our beloved nation, I carry in my hands your destiny. Your choice of leader is now narrowed down to one of two; either the insincere mass murderer who has massacred you when chanted for freedom, or a deceitful con artist who has used religion to gain the throne”.
The words struck an Egyptian more painfully than the bullets he took in Tahrir. The so seemingly bright future we imagined suddenly turned horrifyingly dark. Spring is over now, the clouds got denser and darker, blocking the sunlight. A thunder struck, followed by heavy rain showers that washed the undried blood of martyrs, where they sacrificed it, down the drain, along with all the hopes of everyone who has took action against heinous regime.
I’m sorry, I have failed you."
