Hooray for Egypt!

Democracy?

Like many people, I’ve been following events in Egypt and was surprised and delighted to hear of Mubarek’s ouster. I hope democracy and peace follow – if not immediately, then eventually. I’m very happy for the people of Egypt and feel very proud of them. Good for you, Egypt. Show us how it’s done!

Thanks to @NevineZaki for this picture, which I downloaded for this post:

Transformational?

Other posts referred to the pride Egyptians of all types were feeling for their country, some for the first time ever. I hope for a good outcome. I hope also that the US, for once, accepts the will of the people there, rather than the dictators.
