We Want To Do It Ourselves!

I just listened to the young Egyptian lady Sharouq El-Rays talking to NPR's Robert Siegel about democracy in Egypt. Here is what she said when she was asked about democracy in Egypt:
“We want to do it ourselves! We do not want President Bush to come and make it himself”

I hope you read this one day. I am so proud of you. You just gave me a lot of hope after a short phase of despair and sadness.

Please listen to Sharouq and other young Egyptians talking about their future on NPR.

Thanks for the link.. It's great and I'm exploring it..

To tell you the truth, I am now re-questioning this very statement.
Who said that we "have to" do it ourselves? I have been religiously sticking to this statement.. but now.. why? and the major question is: Who are we and who "is not" "we"???
