Taking a stand in Egypt

I'm sure many of you have been watching the movement in Egypt and across the MiddleEast unfold. I came across some interesting stats the other day while doing a little research at BTC.

Did you know that 65% of the general population in the MiddleEast is under the age of 30?

And in Egypt 85-90% of people 30 or younger are unemployed?

No wonder they are looking for a forum to express their discontent.

Look at what 9% unemployment is doing to our generation here in the US! 90%???? Imagine how trapped you would feel.

I know this post is brief but just wanted to take a moment to stand in solidarity with all the young people speaking out and standing up in Egypt. Here's to hope and progress.
