Looks like things have heated up to the point in Egypt, that there is no traveling to the area. For US citizens in the country, they are urging them to not leave their hotels.

My husband spoke to his mother on their "land line" this morning. They are worried about violence and how the government will react. Rightfully so. Alexandria is one of the cities that they are asking even the residents to stay inside.

If you are the praying kind, keep our family in your prayers. If you are the activist kind - feel free to visit Amnesty International for ways to write a letter to the Egyptian government.
