Three decades of totalitarian rule by the Mubarak regime finally ended on Friday as the President gave up his powers to the military. Vice President Omar Suleiman announced Mubarak's resignation amidst cries of joy by the masses.
Throughout the country, people celebrated in joyful pandemonium and the entire sky was lit by the colorful lights of fireworks. People chanted in union Hold your heads high, you are Egyptians. The downfall of the regime marks the onset of a new era for the Egyptian civilization as thousands of ecstatic protestors hugged each other, danced and prayed. The street demonstrations and protests that began in the country on January 25, 2011, was the consequence of years of suppression under a government that left no stones unturned to curb the rights and freedom of the masses.
