The times they are a changin

"The barrier of fear is broken"
Mohamed ElBaradei, Egypt

I am so excited I can barely stand it: Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, even protests in Algeria! Where next?

Revolution baby! This is what I want to see. CHANGE!!

Check out what's happening:
Tunisia
BBC on Egypt
Pictures in Egypt
CNN on Egypt
Al Jazeera on Egypt
NYTimes on Yemen
BBC on Yemen
News about Algeria

And just for kicks, check out this awesome "In Pictures" about the secession of Southern Sudan!

I am praying so hard for things to go well in all of these places. The people who are willing to stand up to their corrupt and oppressive leaders are so brave! I don't know what the outcome will be, but how inspiring to see these everyday people taking to the streets to demand justice!! They need all of our thoughts and prayers!

Any ideas on what else we can do to help?
