Show of support to Sharm victims

From Digressing, initiated by Africano:

Starting Thursday noon, July 28, 2005.

In the garden of ElSawy Culture Center: Leave a flower, light a candle, write a statement, read a verse, put a picture, draw a painting, join us in expressing the feelings of sadness over the victims of the terrorists blasts, and in expressing your opinions on facing terrorism.

The idea is based on organizing a public reaction in a calm artistic manner like what happened after the London and Madrid bombings.

A small corner where each one can express their support with the victims, a paper with their names, candles, verses of the Quran or the Bible, sweet word, flower or a bunch of flowers, a sign, etc. The matter is left to each one's innovation.

There won't be a protest, nor a gathering, nor chants, nor signs against the regime. The objective is clear, and its a calm public rejection of terrorism which is everyone's enemy.

This will continue, God willing, for a few days. So if you can't make it on Thursday, you can go to the Sakia Culture Centre in any following day.

That is a beutifull idea. I will ask a friend of mine in Egypt to lay a rose for me.

Important to note, I am not involved in organizing this. I think Mohammed from Digressing is involved though and came up with this idea. Thanks for his efforts. I'm just broadcasting this in English here.

It really is a great idea! And I guess any kind of support should be appreciated, even just broadcasting the idea in English! So, Mo, if you go there, please take my virtual support with you! Thanks.
