I actually cried tears of joy for a few minutes after I watched the live announcement. Good thing my wife wasn`t here to see me cry...




Good for you man.... us guys can cry too.... It's an overwhelming experience just to watch it, Imagine being there


I spent the majority of my time over the past 3 weeks watching this event unfold live on Al Jazeera, Twitter, and Facebook. I`ve made new Egyptian friends on Twitter because of this as well.

It`s strange, but even though I`m sitting here in Canada, half a world away from Tahrir Square, I feel as if I was also a part of their revolution. I feel as if I have been in Tahrir Square for the past three weeks with my fellow revolutionists.

Over the past three weeks, I have seen people from every walk of life, rich/poor, Christian/Muslim, young/old, etc. speaking with one voice, saying "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!". I feel honored to have been a part of this amazing event so far, but a part of me also feels that this is just the beginning of a global revolution.

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.



I fear they wont be free for very long, for when the Muslim brotherhood slide in the doors to power all these poor people will suffer greater than before

@chrislhayes


...this will forever change people's mental image of the much-dreaded "Arab street."


Let's hope so.

I know same here... I've watched this thing grow and grow and have been glued to it for the entire time.
It was great and then awful... and ugly and looked like it was almost over, but no.... they kept fighting and stood strong.


This is truly a momentous occasion

It does annoy me that people like Obama and Cameron praise this and say It's great and so on.

The US and UK funded the Egyptian regime and wanted Mubarak to rule the country.

It's all well and good to jump on the bandwagon and say you support the people, but when you've funded their oppression, I find that pretty disgusting.

Dude, please just let it go. Nobody is buying into that, haven't you noticed? Didn't work for Mubarak, and it won't work for you. This was about the people, all people, and they all stood together. The muslim brotherhood will not slide in the doors to power, anymore than the far christian right has done here. They don't have the numbers to control things, they may have a seat the table, and that's up to the Egyptian people. Take a xanax and just breath....

Switzerland Freezes Mubarak's Assets -- Rumored As Much As $70 Billion

I guess he won't get too far past Sharm el-Sheik , if that's where he really is.

I hope someone deeply decent gets in their and exposes every other corrupt government.. Anyone who has been supporting this Mubarak. You're all criminals and you know who you are.

I wait eagerly for the dust to kick up right in their faces..

Then i hope that Egypt will release the strangle hold it has on its history and allow the world time and freedom to explore, investigate and decipher all of the ancient Egyptian history.

We may be so surprised of what we may learn. At least it would be a big step towards Egypt promoting itself..
We have already learnt just how peaceful and emotional these brothers and sisters are.. now let this attitude be a lesson and may we share it with each other.

Vice President Biden just volunteered sentimental comments about Egypt. This appears to be so hypocritical since we participated in propping up these dictatorships for decades. The Egyptian people have openly declined any help from western countries because of this fact. I hope in Obama's televised speech this afternoon, he respects everyone's knowledge of U.S. involvement in supporting Mubarak's dictatorial rule. In my opinion, our government shares the guilt.

Mubarak steps down on the 32nd anniversary of of the Shah's fall in Iran.

Feb. 11 1979

The royal regime collapsed shortly after on February 11 when guerrillas and rebel troops overwhelmed troops loyal to the Shah in armed street fighting.

Interesting!! The clerics in Iran must be loving this right now. Let's see what gets sucked into this power vacuum now. Coincidence??

Okay, I give up, because this is just plainly true:

@ianinegypt


No verb or amount of video can describe the atmosphere of Tahrir.
