Obligatory Post about Egypt

The news is in; history has happened.

On the one hand, I am happy for the people of Egypt, that they were able to effect change on their country.

On the other, while this achievement was "great", it remains to be seen if it will be "good".

Handing control of a country to the military is always a bit frightening. Of course, it sounds like Egypt was basically run by the military already. At least, the parts of it that worked.

My most fervent prayer is that the people of Egypt are guided by wisdom during this transition. Their country seems very malleable right now, and it is up to them whether they are reforged into a tool for building, or a weapon for destruction.
