Egypt's June 30th Revolution was a perfect example of Democracy in action--governance by the will of the people.

If in retrospect, some people are worried, they can be compared to those emerging from prison who are so terrified of daily living without the direction of their jailers, they find fault with life on the "outside" and eventually commit another crime to hurry back into the safety of their cells.

There is no freedom without risk. There are no guarantees of peace and safety with the practice of democracy. But Egypt's revolution, as violent and bloody as it was and will continue to be, has opened the door for all three--freedom, peace and safety.
