Thanks for the link.

Well, for one thing, the country is so divided on some of the more emotional issues, that I'm not sure we could unite on something to get that intense about. I have this theory that I'd love to write about sometime that cites Sesame Street as the catalyst for the changing attitudes towards things like equality and acceptance. And how the generation that is now grandparents raised their children to be tolerant and accepting of things they themselves are not yet ready to accept. And that the majority of resistance, the reason things like gay marriage keep getting voted down, is that longer life spans have allowed that intolerance to hang around and be backed by money. But the crazy part of all that is that this is how they raised their children. WE are the products of their upbringing. They taught us to accept even though they couldn't because they inherently know it's right.

Ignore my crazy ramblings. It's just weird being a daughter and a mother in these changing times. It's like every day I watch the world change around me. Not just in Egypt by in my immediate world too.
