I'm hoping democracy does spread through the ME because, that might just be the spark to make people realize, hey, I actually do have power!

Thought id drop this in too. Just a reiteration of the good that was done in Egypt. I just hope it ends up alright... The last thing needed is religious fundamentalism to show it's ugly head.

S & F.

I am amazed and extremely impressed with both the protesters and the military; incredible displays of restraint.

The only violence I know of was perpetrated by Mubarak's thugs. I bet they are crapping big piles of pink twinkies right about now.

One of the first things the military must do to continue the goodwill they have with the people now, and show that they truly intend only to hold power during a transition to the democracy the people are demanding is to end the 30 year "state of emergency".

The next step would be to establish an interim civilian council under complete transparency, that would begin the work on a new provisional constitution. A referendum would need to be held so that the people could give their stamp of approval, perhaps under the scrutiny international observers.

This would put in place a framework for elections to be held and the basic rule of law. Then the freely elected government could finalize the interim constitution.

That's all down road, but for now CONGRATULATIONS EGYPT!

Wow. All I can say is WOW......

Congratulations, Egypt. I don't even have words to express how happy I am for all of you, I hope your dreams come to light.

You showed us what a real, heartfelt and honest "YES WE CAN!!", is really all about.

Wait, I though Mubarak did not step down. If he did then I am glad that this got resolved. It's not done yet I don't think.

I travelled through Egypt in the 80's and I loved that beautiful country with the warm hearted people! As part of a tour group I travelled through much of Egypt and then spent some time in Cairo alone. Never once did I feel unsafe or threatened.

It was with great sadness I watched the events unfold as the Egyptian people fought for their rights. It was so sad to see the riots and deaths. I held my breath as I heard that the National Treasures in the Museum and elsewhere were under threat.

So today I wish the warm hearted Egyptians many blessings for their hard fought freedom from a tyrannical rule. May your country continue to be a haven for all those who love history, archeology and the desert sands.

Sending you much love and light.
