  1. I was one of those who took part in this remarkable conference (held in DC on June 26 & 27). All the speakers - from "Young Ethiopian" (she didn't tell us her real name) up to the most respected Prof. Ephraim Isaac - made very sound and remarkable speeches. If I start writing all about what I felt and what I got from the conference, my comment is going to be far bigger than the main post which is unusual and I believe that comments should be small and brief. I have at least one big hope on EGI. That is, EGI will be an icebreaker as well as an important role player in creating social awareness with the Ethiopians all over the world within a very short period of time. Keep the good work fellows. We can do this together.
