Egypt's Future Will be Better When...

Today's dose of backhanded optimism is brought to you by #مستقبل_مصر_هيتحسن_لما.

It's easy to bitch and moan about everything going wrong in Egypt - there's plenty of material for that. What isn't easy is looking on the bright side, the side of optimism and opportunity. Sure, there's a lot wrong with this country. There's a lot wrong with a lot of things in the world. But the question becomes 'what are we going to do about it?' We all imagine the ideal Egypt - perhaps the Egypt of our parents' times, perhaps an Egypt that looks a little more like somewhere else in the world, or perhaps an Egypt that lives in our imaginations alone. But what will it take to get there?

The Twitterverse has been abuzz today with trending hashtag #مستقبل_مصر_هيتحسن_لما - 'Egypt's future will be better when'. With some people expressing anger, others political stances, and others hilarious perspectives and social commentary, the hashtag serves as a little beacon of hope that, yeah, Egypt's future can be much better. [Un]fortunately this optimism also serves as a reminder of the painful realities of 2om el Donya. This is just a quick roundup of some of our favourite tweets, but we also want to know what you think. So, finish the sentence: Egypt's future will be better when...
