    Cairo: On this "Day of Victory" getting HENNA in Celebration


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     changecairo takes advantage of an Egyptian worker offering her Henna skills as a way to show support for Egyptians and to celebrate the ‘Day of victory” in Cairo
    - jmcjjCNN, CNN iReport producer

    I did it !!! I got 'henna-fied.' What better reason for doing so then the One Week "Day of Victory" Anniversary? It is the BEST REASON.

    It was the day the regime stepped down & flew to Sharm el-Sheikh. It is the anniversary of a liberated population of 80 Million plus...

    Egyptians Live in the Moment ~ something I too can learn from. They Love, they cry, they fight, dance...oh' can they dance. In addition to savoring their Shisha and drinking tea.

    They also get HENNA. Henna's historical trail began in Ancient Egypt. Today, normally used for 'celebratory purposes.'

    Yes, let's Celebrate when celebration is due.

    Let's live in the moment.

    In addition to reminding ourselves that hard work is ahead. The trail of Democracy is a 'work in progress'....and it is NOT A WESTERN THING ~ IT IS A UNIVERSAL THING...this thing called Democracy.
