Young people are doing it again!

Many of us were alive when young people filled the streets all over the United States back in the late sixties. Then those folks were protesting the Vietnam War and the government prosecution of that war. Protests eventually brought an end to that war and eventually indirectly caused a president to resign.

Today over forty years later young people in Tunis and now in Egypt fill the streets wanting something better wanting their future to be in their hands and a change at the top. Those of us who were alive back then in the late sixties I for one find it amazing that we will witness the people in action and causing change in our lifetime. Possibly, a wholesale change in the Middle East possibly that this will just be the tip of the iceberg. Could this be the tidal wave of change to democracy that would forever make how we look at our world?
