Egypt, Let Freedom Ring!

Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
And let freedom ring from the streets of Cairo!

-MLK v.2011

Today's news from Egypt is exhilarating, demonstrating once again that freedom is a universal value.

Going forward, will it impact the flow of oil out of the Middle East as some fear? Oil that we are still sadly addicted to? That remains to be seen. Will we learn before it's too late and create an energy plan beyond Keep Oil Cheap?

These are important issues, but today is a day to celebrate and honor the people of Egypt who made this happen.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." -Declaration of Independence
