I’ve been a news junkie for most of my life.
I’ve watched and read…listened and discussed…and I’ve long appreciated the work that journalists do.
As I monitor coverage of the protests in Egypt, I am in awe.
Citizen journalists are getting their story out despite technological shut downs and unchecked violence…professional journalists are on the ground reporting, despite the fact that pro-government thugs are targeting them with violence too.
When I say that the whole world is watching I say so knowing that people are risking their lives to give us news and images documenting events on the ground.
I just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge that.
Words cannot express how much I appreciate that.
The whole world is watching thanks to the brave souls in the square…
