It’s only been 40 days in 2015 and we’ve already lost countless lives. What we tend to forget is that we’re all Egyptian at the end of the day and that every life matters. It is not OK for soldiers to die just because they are part of the current regime, it is not OK for Ikhwani to die just because you support a different political party.
Whether you are Muslim or Christian, soldier or citizen, pro-Sisi or pro-Morsi, you are still Egyptian and it shouldn’t be easy, let alone satisfying to see a fellow Egyptian die right in front of your eyes.
We mourn the loss of every Egyptian that has parted this world. May they all rest in peace.
