I was fortunate to see a peaceful revolution within my life. I have admired the peaceful movements by Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. But I did not see them from my eyes. Did not hear from my ears. All happened before I was born. But today that is not the case. Egypt is free as a result of a peaceful movement which lasted just 18 days. It is a historical day that we can tell to our grand children. Achievements from peace are more stable and far more valuable. There will be a lot of people 'alive' to celebrate that achievement, that's what make it more valuable. It is the people in Egypt who achieved this freedom. And it is up to the people in Egypt to protect what they have achieved. That is what the rest of the world is hoping for!
