“Firstly, I’d like to give me condolences to the families of the Egyptians who died, I give my condolences to them," said Ghonim. "I can’t say that I apologize because no protester broke anything, all protests were peaceful and our motto was “Do Not Break.”

"Second of all I want to say please don’t make a hero out of me, on the contrary I’m a person who was sleeping for 12 days," he says. "The real heros are the people on the ground, please direct the camera and give the attention to those people. And God willing we will change this country. Also I am alright thank God.”
