Voting on the Constitutional Amendments

For the first time in Egypt's history, we know that our vote will count. Egyptians are making history as turn out rates at the polling booths are amazingly high. Everyone is proactive, all for the sake of a better Egypt. Regardless of whether the majority vote on the amendments turns out to be a YES or a NO, we have already taken our first step towards democracy today, and we have made ourselves heard.
The Arabic translation of the text is: "Life has become pink in colour" i.e. life has become wonderful. This quote is from an old Egyptian movie, and was sung by the famous Egyptian actress Souad Hosni.
