I've been growing in negativity and cynicism lately but today was a breath of fresh air. I rode an 8am bus back from Sahel with a group of oldies all coming to stand for the Gezira Club. They were protecting their interests, yes, but I so admired and appreciated their optimism and activism. And all over Facebook it was the same from people of all ages.
At the club, people swarmed with positivity, everything was so well organized and in the end 19,000 had mobilized and our goal (of keeping the government out of our affairs) achieved. And, to top it all off, we got 2,000 more votes than Heliopolis! ;)
Today, was a good day and I feel awfully proud!
