YES THEY DID!

Leaderless, compelled by - but by no means determined by - social media, the Egyptian people rose up and smacked down a dictator who held their country in an iron grip for 30 years.

“I’ve worked my whole life to see the power of the people come to the fore,” activist Rabab Al Mahdi told Al Jazeera through tears. “I never thought I would be alive to see it. It’s not just about Mubarak. It’s a protest that brought about the people’s power to bring about the change that no one, no one thought was possible.”

It's impossible to know what will happen next, but one thing can be known with absolute certainty.

Now the real work begins.
