A visually stunning collection of images and footage of revolution in Egypt that led the ouster of Hosni Mubarak. Clearly a lot of blood sweat and tears went into editing this and it is well worth viewing. The tribute to the fallen is deeply touching. So many lives lost in the pursuit of basic human and economic rights.

Sir Walter Scott 1771-1832
BREATHES there the man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
‘This is my own, my native land!’
Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d
As home his footsteps he hath turn’d
From wandering on a foreign strand?
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonour’d, and unsung.
