Morning in Egypt

Sunrise on the Nile  
It's morning in Egypt.
Congratulations to Egyptians for not backing down and for toppling Hosni Mubarak.
I'm so proud of you, and so deeply touched that I was there and saw the protests for myself.
Thank you.

Let's hope that Egypt's day dawn that beautifully, with just a few ripples on the water, not storms.

That photo is stunning!
I, too, am hoping for a smooth transition to a new, more democratic government for the people of Egypt.

Thank you so much, BL. Maybe if we all keep good thoughts in our heads for the transition it will help.
