Enduring Egypt

Posted by tomlaporte on April 27, 2008 at 6:13 PM
Herodotus wrote that Egypt is the gift of the Nile.  I contend that the monuments of antiquity are the Pharaohs� gifts to Egypt.  By their dedication to the gods of Upper and Lower Egypt and their own best efforts to preserve individual legacies, the leaders of ancient Egypt expanded their borders beyond their own imaginations as they unsuspectingly carved their story into our imaginations and made Egypt universally eternal.

Meanwhile, modern day people, workers, farmers, the men and women born of Egypt�s fertile land and barren deserts continue to live very similarly to that of their ancestors.  Their very lives are a testament to the greatness and endurance of Egypt, the home of civilization.  Though some may think the villagers, tent dwellers and cemetery communities are uncivilized, those thoughts are far from reality, and stuck in perception, a false one at that.
