I Love the Sound of Freedom in the Morning!

Mubarak's fallen away into the textbooks, and the new day dawns at last. What will it bring? We don't know. But come joy come sorrow by evening - and there is always some evening sorrow at last - for now, here comes the Sun!

Translation from Afro-Europe International Blog:

I went down and I said I am not coming back, and I wrote on every street wall that I am not coming back.

All barriers have been broken down, our weapon was our dream, and the future is crystal clear to us, we have been waiting for a long time, we are still searching for our place, we keep searching for a place we belong too, in every corner in our country.

The sound of freedom is calling, in every street corner in our country, the sound of freedom is calling..

We will re-write history, if you are one of us, join us and don't stop us from fulfilling our dream.

- Sout Al Horeya, that is The Sound of Freedom, by Amir Eid.
