Land of the Free

The Land of the free........
And the home of the brave:  Egypt!

Have a wonderful weekend!
See you Monday.


  1. Hasn't it been fascinating watching this unfold?

  2. Vicki, Wasn't it?!!

    I feel like I've been right there in the middle of it! I know we were all certain the world was going to see horrific bloodshed. I was almost afraid to look yesterday morning. After he had refused to step down the previous night, what could we expect? But when the announcement came that Mubarak had really resigned, we were delerious; I whooped and hollered and let the tears roll right here JOTOLR. It still chokes me up! AlJezeera had live streaming (and YES!!! High Speed Internet is unbelievably wonderful!)and we had it on from 8:00 a.m. until...
    Fascinating and wonderful! Sure, they've got a lot on their plates right now. But they'll work their own problems. They don't need us telling them what they "must" and "must not" do. (Unfortunate choice of words by Obama four hours into the Egyptians' first day of freedom. He'll have to learn the hard way that neither he nor the Israelis are in charge any more and begin now to re-structure his tone and language.) Somehow, I thought it was noteworthy that they put messages out for folks to show up this morning with as many trash bags as they could muster, and clean up Tahrir Square. What a humble but practical way to begin!
