So, I feel like we need to pay some attention to the revolutions going on in the middle east because it's clearly becoming an incredibly major event in the history of the region and the world. a lot of attention was given to egypt but we must also think about the many other countries facing similar situations. it's amazing to me that one country's activities can spark similar action in others. so spend some time, look it up, we're talking even some (very small) protests in china!
