This has been one of the most heartbreaking things I've ever read. It's truly depressing to think of people marching for freedom only to have their revolution stolen by some fundamentalist pigs!

Unfortunately this hits very close to home as the situation here in Egypt bears a striking resemblance to what Marjaine Satrapi tells of her childhood in Iran during the revolution.

It hurts to think that we might en up the same way. With women forced to wear the veil and religion turned into superficial acts to use as a way to oppress and kill instead of enlightening and spreading compassion.

The ending just nearly did me in. I hope things turned out well for Marjane an her parents.
