10 ordinary people... are changing the face of Egypt

When you think back in our recent history of ordinary people who have changed the face of our country.. Rosa Parks and others like her... who stood up to the man.. to oppression, ignorance, bigotry, lies and mis-information.... ordinary people who have had enough.

In Egypt... as we speak... their President is being forced out of office... why? the ordinary people, can't get jobs, watch as the rich get richer and the poor suffer. The lack of food and basic human rights, coruption at the highest levels, opression of the masses... and much more.

We are witnessing other countries doing the same thing... ordinary people fed up, tired and hungry, poor and disenfranchised... taking to the streets, willing to die for their cause.... for basic human respect of their leaders.

10 People.. lead by a single mom... in a small room... no internet, no money, no way to communicate to all of the million ordinary people... all asking for the same thing.. fairness from their government. No real weapons, no tanks, no suicide bombers, just real human beings, demanding fairness.

We are witness to history... and this event will effect us all, one way or the other. They may even stir up our own ordinary people...demanding fairness.

What they are doing in Egypt is changing not just the face of Egypt, but the face of the entire Middle East. Ghandi did this in India, and I hope these Egyptians follow his example and change the leadership and direction of their country without violence. Is see today that there were camels and horses running through these peaceful protesters. I hope they continue to set the example they have set thus far, not being violent and not answering violence with violence. The world is watching and they can teach us and prove to us so much with how the handle this. They are showing the good face of the Moslem religion, which so many of us forget.

So far so good but lets see how this ends up before we praise what they are doing.

You seem to forget that these are muslim fundamentalists who are overthrowing the government. We should be more than a little concerned about that. Egypt is the only country over there with civil relations with the Israels,lose that and the whole dynamics of the Middle East could change. I hope this is a good thing, but I will hold off on praise for this overthrow of the government until I see what they replace it with.

No matter whet replaces what exists,it will be better for the people of Egypt than what currently exists. Isn't that enough to be celebrating?
