History in the making: Inside the Egyptian revolution

In this video, Wael Ghonim discusses how a small and seemingly insignificant Facebook page paved the way for Egyptian empowerment and self-determination.

A small idea, a few minutes on the internet and a national dream was in the making. So think about it, one tiny intiative can lead to big things. Dr. Doris Allen brought kids from a few countries together in a camp back in 1951, today we are a global community populated by active citizens of change.

Reflect on your community, what would you like to change? Share it with others and make an impact. As Wael Ghonim concludes his lecture, he notes that "the power of the people is stronger than the people in power." So whatever obstacles you may face, always remember that the smallest action, even a Facebook page, can turn into something magnificent.
