Wael Ghonim is free and his first words (with English translation)

Firstly, I’d like to give me condolences to the families of the Egyptians who died, I can’t say that I apologize because no protester broke anything, all protests were peaceful and out slogan was Peaceful Demonstrations. I want to say please don’t make a hero out of me, I’m a person who was sleeping for 12 days. The real heros are those people on the ground, please direct the camera and give the attention to those people. And God willing we will change this country. All the bad (dirty) things in this country should be fixed, and we will fix it. *applause*
