I have a lot to tell about my story: a small story in the great event of the Egyptian revolution. How I started this website/blog and how I created the English page “We are all Khaled Said” working closely with Wael Ghonim who created the Arabic Page. How I focused on international awareness while he focused on internal activitism. I have a lot to talk about, chats and email discussions I had with Wael and many other activists, arranging protests worldwide in support of Egypt, silent stands, 25 Jan preparation, etc. There are many memories to share with anyone interested to know what was happening behind the scenes but I don’t think I am ready to do this now. Mainly becuase the revolution is still happening and yesterday was the anniversary and we are not there yet. I want to tell the story when the story finishes not while it is happening. May be I will tell the story when I decide to close the facebook page and delete this website, may be before then. Not sure yet.
For now, I will start posting on this blog/website smaller parts of my story not the full one. This first post though, is written by one of my English Facebook page “We are all Khaled Said” members/fans. I wanted to publish his post on this website/blog so that it is preserved for history as I don’t know the policy of the website currently hosting it and whether they delete old posts, etc.
The following article is taken without changes from an article written on the website: Daily Kos (www.dailykos.com) and written by an unknown writer calling himself: “frenchman” and who is a member/fan of my facebook page. Link to the original article is here:
