Egyptian Christmas Tree
Just a few minutes into the new year, 2011, a large explosion took place in the Two Saints Church in Alexandria, Egypt.
As many Egyptian Copts were inside the church at the time of the explosion for mass, the attack left 22 persons killed.
This horrific attack sent shock waves throughout the nation, with the many citizens, Copts and Muslims, assuring their unity and solidarity, and their belief that they are all Egyptians regardless of their religious affiliations.
