I tend to stick to thoughts about writing on this blog. But when I had a request for a school visit this morning, I couldn’t help thinking about the ones that I did in Egypt a couple of years ago at my sister’s school, Cairo American College. These were unpaid events for my sister’s friends. But they also doubled as research since a couple of the characters in my work-in-progress attended that school.
Those kids, teachers and my sister are all hunkered down today as events unfold in Cairo. I’m keeping them in my prayers. May the demonstrations be peaceful and effective.
