Warsaw, Berlin and Cairo

I’ve been saying (well someone has to give me some credit!) in posts and threads here and elsewhere that Egypt has felt like Poland, where they went through what was  called the Velvet Revolution – for its peaceful aspect and its success. It felt like Berlin at times; today is so reminiscent of that first night in Berlin when the wall came down.

Yes, peril still lies ahead, but this moment is epic. It is humanity at its most noble.

I hope they manage to move forward with the same spirit they’ve shown the world for the last three weeks.

And I hope they succeed in creating a free and democratic nation. Now that would be an example.
