Greenville Residents Speak Out About Egypt Crisis

Two Greenville residents who have family in Egypt speak out about the crisis going on overseas.

The unrest in Egypt may seems like a million miles away, but for two people in the East it really hits home.

Abdel Rahman and Heba Khamis have family members and loved ones living in Egypt right now.

Rahman says, "We are on the phone on a daily basis and we make sure that everything with our family is okay.”

Khamis says, "We are calling everyday and just giving them our support. Basically we are their voices abroad. I mean the first few days when they didn't have internet the Egyptian Americans and Egyptians all over the world, we're the voices for them. So we would call our families, we would hear what was going on, we would get on the internet, we would basically tell their stories."

Both say they are proud of their country, Egyptians standing up for what they believe in. Both also say they are praying for a better tomorrow.
