Egypt: Victory Day
Wanted to post that on this day, Feb. 11, 2011, the Egyptian people celebrated a milestone in the country's life as it lurched toward a more democratic nation. The politics and cultural issues are thick and knotty. Nonetheless, with President Mubarak becoming the "former President" of Egypt, the people, who gathered in Tahrir Square (literally meaning Liberation Square) brought forth what terrorists and anarchists could not do: true(r) liberation.
To the people I've met in Egypt on many pilgrimages, congrats!
