Re: “Food from the homeland” (TNT, 4-20).

Wafa Abdelrehim helped to birth the movement that has freed Egypt from Mubarak; he has nothing to be ashamed of. Staying to die an untimely death in a back room somewhere would not have helped advance the movement, may in fact have stalled it, and left his son with no one to look up to.

He should be proud of the part he has played in this historic event. I’m sure that his son is.
