Cooperation

Farida AbdelMaksoud 10S Cooperation Cooperation has always been one of Hayah’s Core Values. Just six months ago I have been really in touch with its importance. January 25, 2011 was a remarkable day for the entire world. Six months ago the astonishing Egyptians were able to overthrow Hosni Mubarak and all his corrupted government. The remarkable and cooperative Egyptian would not have been able to do it without cooperating with each other and heading to Tahrir Square asking to change Hosni’s System and together build a new Egypt. They said Egypt died 30 years ago yet Egyptians found it in 18 days through cooperation hand in hand Egyptians gave in all the strength they have, all the power and all their voices. A single Egyptian wouldn’t have been able to overthrow the Dictator but together we did it, and I am glad and proud I joined in. Because of the rumors and dreadful things said about the Egyptians and the countless lies that Egyptians fight among each other and that there is a huge tension between Muslims and Christians; the Revolution was a chance to prove to the world that it did not matter if we were Muslim or Christian. I have seen Muslims protect Churches and I have also seen Christians holding each other’s hand and form a huge circle around the Muslims praying, offering protection. In Tahrir Square finally Egypt woke up and showed the world that they have gone through a lot of positive changes because of the love and cooperation that grew among the Egyptians. I am glad that Hayah is trying to teach its students cooperation in a young age, because no one knows maybe this new generation might make a difference just like their ancestors. The key to...

ICT Article: Perseverance...

On the 25th of January, 2011, many Egyptians went down to Tahrir square to protest against the regime and all the corruption in it. In the beginning of the day the protesters were met with excessive violence from the police forces, however, they still managed to reach Tahrir square. Once they finally reached the square they stayed there and they said that they will never leave the square unless their demands are met. The regime tried its best to make these protesters leave the square; they did everything possible to try to make them leave, they cut off the cell phone lines from the for a full day across the country which was Friday the 28th of January, 2011. They even cut off all Internet access across the country for a whole week. Even though these things were done to make the people leave Tahrir square, the people became more stubborn and they said that they did not need their phones or even the internet to keep protesting. The night of the 28th was the most violent night during the whole revolution. The old regime cut off electricity from the whole Square. It was completely dark to the extent that people could see the light from the bullets fired by the police force. The police started using real bullets that night even though they were not authorized to use real bullets. This night was the night that most of the Martyrs of the revolution died in. They gave their lives for Egyptians to feel the taste of freedom. This is why the people remained in Tahrir square for eighteen consecutive days; they just could not give away the lives of these innocent Egyptians who wished to see their country a better country. They persevered...
