Egypt's New Government Expected To Be Tougher

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

On Sunday, Egypt received its second
new government in less than six
weeks, including a new foreign
minister who is expected to be
tougher with Israel than the
government of the ousted
president Hosni Mubarak was.

Essam Sharaf, the newly
appointed prime minister,
disclosed his new cabinet
while tensions heightened
between pro-democracy
protesters and the army in
downtown Cairo.

Troops fired live ammunition
to scatter civilians armed
with knives/sticks, and
stopped demonstrators who
wanted to enter a key
security building.

Sharaf was named Thursday as
part of an effort by the Supreme
Council of the Armed Forces,
the military council now in
charge of Egypt, to satisfy the
country's impatient democracy
activists and their demands to
remove Mubarak era faces. The
previous cabinet was named by
Mubarak in late January in a
desperate attempt to curtail
the uprising calling for his

"We need to give the new
government a chance," Mahmoud
Salem, blogger
and activist present at the
scene but left when the armed
civilians appeared. "Some people
are bitter and angry, and it could
lead to hostility later. Ordinary
people want things to move on."

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
