free for egypt

It’s so easy to forget how blessed I am to be living in a country where religious freedom is celebrated (of course, that can seriously debated and I recognize that) but when compared to Egypt, a country where Coptic Christians have survived and have kept their faith alive and flourishing despite the oppression and persecution they face on the daily, living in America is a breeze

In the face of the recent attack on St. Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo, I just want to remind people to keep the Copts in Egypt as well as all the religious minorities around the whole world in their thoughts and prayers. Now more than ever it is important to support each other and build each other up regardless of our faiths, to love each other and be there for one another in the hopes of developing our world as well as our spiritual lives. 


*Waits patiently for Americans to apologise for destroying my country, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Palestine, Libya, Egypt, Somalia, Sudan and giving birth to terrorists groups like Al Qaeda, Al Nusra, the Taliban and ISIS, but still blaming and portraying Muslims as the terrorists*

Prince of Egypt character asks
  • Moses: What makes you feel insecure?
  • Rameses: An expectation you feel others have of you?
  • Miriam: What gets you through difficult times?
  • Aaron: Are you more of a pessimist or an optimist?
  • Tzipporah: Introvert or extravert?
  • Hotep and Huy: Assuming you're religious - are rituals important to you or is it enough just to have faith?
  • Yocheved: Do you think truly unselfish acts exist?
  • Queen Tuya: Is there anyone you're not related to who feels as close as family?
  • Seti: "Sometimes, for the greater good, sacrifices must be made" - agree or disagree?
  • Jethro: One of the wisest pieces of advice you've been given?
  • Tzipporah's sisters: Whom do you look up to the most?
  • God: Do you believe in miracles?
I really want a AH Ancient Egypt AU
  • But guys think about it
  • Pharaoh!Geoff making the most convoluted pyramid to grace Lower Egypt
  • Just think back to all of the old Let’s Builds where he starts with a simple idea and it gets way out of hand (i.e. Ice Cube)
  • Geoff looking tired as he lazily holds his scepter and staff
  • Architect!Jack helping him with designs of his home, pyramid, and everything in between
  • B team being his best workers, even being promoted to managers of areas
  • Prince!Gavin decked out in gold a la GTA, always making sure the kohl lining his eyes is on point 
  • General!Michael keeping track of the kings military, making sure Pharaoh Geoff is undefeated
  • I mean the mighty Mogar could keep anyone in check
  • Scribe!Jeremy in the top 1% of people that can read and write
  • Imagine Jeremy studying all of his life to be able to work along side the king and finally reaching a point where he is right up there with the other officials 
  • And of course my favorite
  • Great Priest of Anubis!Ryan mummifying all of the important people of Egypt
  • Most are scared of him because he is rumored to talk directly to Anubis (those in the inner circle know he can barely talk to humans without flubbing)
  • But seriously I need this
