After 30 years of living under the thumb of an oppressive dictator, the Egyptian people have freed themselves by coming together in peaceful but persistent protest. I hope oppressed people around the world look at Egypt and see that freedom is possible for anyone and that together, their voices can be heard. But this is just the first step: the United States must make it clear that it will not support a government, such as the Muslim Brotherhood, that continues the tyranny of the past.
