Violence is never the answer...

The Egyptian society is one of a kind, a society that is not just a community, its more. The Egyptian society is a family, Egyptian people did not believe in the existence of such a society. But it was clearly seen in Tahrir square in a month that will be remembered and studied for generations yet to come, a time that will never be forgotten in the coming centuries. As the people realized that rulers come and go, but that Egypt will always be there, they decided to become the change. Their philosophy changed to the better, they taught the world a lesson that will never be forgotten. As when Muslims prayed Christians protected them  and vice versa. This is not democracy, but something much superior to democracy at a level the world has never witnessed. That is how strong the people’s will is, it stands against any weapon no matter how domineering it is. A weapon that was used by the former regime was violence. Violence was used to silence those who can spoke blind those who can see, and kill those who knew more than they need. The people of Egypt showed a diversified philosophy that was not witnessed in revolutions before, which is being peaceful. When going back in the pages of history to the french revolution, especially when talking about the reign of terror. “The Reign of Terror , was a period of violence that occurred for one year and one month after the onset of the French Revolution.”1 Estimates vary widely as to how many were killed, with numbers ranging from 16,000 to 40,000 deaths . But in Tahrir square you would stand in front of the thug that was hitting you telling him you are revolting for him....
