Egypt

As I watch the continuing news coverage on what is happening in Egypt I feel so happy for the people. They are making their destiny and for the most part in a peaceful manner; which is amazing for a country so large with over 80 million people.
If that happened here the rioters and looters would be out of control, heck it take a lot less than that, sometimes just a little alcohol and a sports championship to ignite the stupidity.

I'm sure we will hear about incidents, situations and lies that a dying government will try to use, but I wish the people well on this new journey and may it stay peaceful now and into their future.

Update: I wrote this yesterday because today things turned and the pro-government thugs moved in and started clashing with the demonstrators.

It does sound like you'd almost want to be part of it, doesn't it?

I was happy to see some of the Egyptian citizens cleaning the streets because of the pride they have to keep things clean despite the stupid choices from others.

Guess I spoke to soon, this morning it looks like people are finally getting frustrated and acting out.
