This iReport is part of an assignment:
It's a small world after all.
Two years ago, almost to the day, I finished a song I had written for ANAV.
Being that is was the "anniversary" of the song lol, I was curious how it was being received.
Hadn't looked at it in a while so I went to youtube and checked the stats.
It's been shared quite a bit, and listened to by people through-out the world.
But that's not the part that really sort of shocked me.
This week the song was shared to a Facebook page.
My curiosity got the best of me so I typed in the name of the song on facebook and found the person who had shared it to his page.
The man lives in Egypt.
Even the writing was Egyptian. Although you can have it translated on the page.
Being that I'm somewhat of a snoop and wanted to see Egypt secretly through the eyes of one of it's own, I looked through his pics. lol I know...bad me.
In his pics he had several pictures of his office and friends.
But I guess what raised my eyebrows the most, was pic of either friend or business partner, who happened to be in the "Masary branch in the Egyptian army".
It just struck me...
All the protesting we saw last year in Egypt,
and the recent elections, these folks either took part in them or were keenly aware of them.
It just made me think.
What a small world it really is that this simple little song, written for a friend here on ireports, was being heard by people who were living through a remarkable time in their own country.
And for that one moment...indirectly we were linked.
