“I am not the only one confused here, many protesters are confused too. Some are saying that they have to stay and calling for another demonstration next Friday, and some others are calling people to get back to their homes end those protests altogether. Nothing is sure yet, but I am just sure of one single thing, Egypt has changed.
I still remember that poor lady I met in Tahrir who said something that summed the whole thing in few simple words. She told me, ‘A couple of days ago I was so scared of every single police soldier, and today I am here protesting against the head of the state.’”
