According to the AP, Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak has finally resigned, and handed power to the military, the group probably most respected by the Egyptian people. The top military body, the Armed Forces Supreme Council, has vowed to guide the nation towards democracy.
This is an amazing moment not just for the people of Egypt but for human rights and democracy.
This is how democracy comes about -- not brought into a nation by invaders, but grown from the roots up by the people.
Congratulations to the people of Egypt.
