Egypt, a country that has given the world so much in terms of ideas, art, science, medicine, philosophy and spirituality, has been given its greatest wish — President Hosni Mubarak has agreed to step down.
Who knows what the coming days will bring for Egyptians but let us hope for a peaceful transition to a better life for all Egyptians. Mubarak has been a negligent father to his homeland and his homeland has had enough. And while the United States and other counties who propped up Mubarak can offer platitudes about freedom and democracy, the victory does not belong to those countries — it belongs to the Egyptians whose largely peaceful revolution should inspire all of us to say enough in the face of injustice.

“You shall rise, Egypt” 6th of February – I went to the demonstration today and it was one of the most peaceful events I ever attended.
