Around 9 a.m. this morning, I skimmed the coverage in The New York Times about Mubarak’s refusal to resign as President of Egypt.

At approximately 11 a.m., CNN reported that the Vice President of Egypt made a surprise announcement that Mubarak had resigned and will be leaving Egypt.

After 18 days of protest and uncertainty, the news in Egypt has shifted dramatically overnight. “Egypt is free!”

There is still uncertainty and possibly even more of it. Many fears and challenges for the region lie ahead. Important steps and decisions need to be made.

BUT the shoes are down today and “Egyptians deserve their time to celebrate.” There is hope for “a better future.”
