Think about that.

I'm so excited my history fails me, has that really ever been done?




Well they endured violence and they met violence with violence but you're right.... It wasn't a violent uprising.... they were merely defending themselves.

I think It's amazing.

They withstood everything Mubarak threw at them..... being beaten, killed.... tortured and attacked from all sides.... they stood firm and fought back and proudly declared that they wanted freedom and for their voices to be heard.


Truly amazing.

The atmosphere is electric..... man, I can't even imagine what it means to them.... the elation.... the huge weight of their collective shoulders.

As I said, I just hope they get it right.

They have had all their leaders for 60 years from the military.... I just hope all that changes and they get democracy and have their say it what happens to their country.

Just heard that the military turned on Mubarak. They threatened to take off their uniforms and join the protesters in the streets.

That is what keeps running through my head, but no one else seems to grasp the larger picture.

I am still waiting for the real fun to begin.
When the lowlifes no longer fear anything, that is when they come out of the woodwork.

I am now waiting for the scum to rise to the top.

Watching it on TV

One image really touched me..

A man walking along the street of the now free Egypt.

his right hand in his brown jacket pocket....

His left hand holding the hand of his son who was holding an Egyptian flag almost as big as him.

A father and his son walking free for the first time in both of their lives.. It may be that it is all they have ever known.
Now they walk out into a new world.

congratulations Egypt.
