Revolution: Today in a Single Image

It is rare the chaos of a day can captured in a single image. However, I think this photo tweeted by Bassem Sabry comes pretty close. It depicts Midan at-Tahrir filled with people as more arrive, crossing the bridge from Zamalek into Downtown. The exact number of demonstrators is still unknown but current estimates claim it was the biggest demonstration in the history of Egypt. While my body is under house arrest, my heart is in Midan at-Tahrir with the thousands of other demonstrators. Misr, you truly are Umm al-Douna today.
