What are the seeds of revolution?
Revolution—sudden, radical or complete change.
Eighteen days later, Bouazizi died. More than 5,000 people were part of the funeral procession.
His friends, family and the surrounding community rose up and proclaimed him a “heroic martyr.” The protests became so violent that it drove President Ben Ali from the country. His death and the resulting protests sparked other protests in other Middle Eastern countries—Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Syria, Jordan, Oman, Algeria and Saudi Arabia.
The unrest is not done. The seeds of revolution have been planted–years of oppression, bondage, political, economic and social unrest. And in shadows of oppression, the light of freedom will always rise.
Do you think we have the seeds of revolution planted in our own country?
