Chaos Around the World

I may not call it chaos totally, I may call if clamor for democracy. Every day, as I open the net to read the news, international current events are full of news about protests. This has started when Tunisia toppled their president successfully. Then the chain begins from Libya to Egypt to Bahrain to Iran and we don't know where it will end. Is this good or not?
Although at the moment, the world may seem in chaos, but these protests against the overdue presidents and leaders are a long much awaited opportunities for change. Philippines has its own drastic political change too, not only once but twice, first when the late Cory Aquino who successfully led millions of people to EDSA against the Marcos regime who spent 21-long years as the president of the country. The second was when the youth armed with mobile phones (text messages) was able force Pres. Estrada to step down from the office. These political changes in the Middle East are not far from what happened in the Philippines. Sometimes, people have just become tired and want the taste of freedom other countries have been enjoying for long time. It is time for them to savor how it is to be free and exercise their own rights.

While the people from the Middle East are fighting for their liberty and freedom, people from around the world cannot do anything but support and pray that they would be successful, and the transition will be smooth, and that the next leaders will learn and not abuse power.
