Mubarak 'kicked out by a bunch of kids'

Who are the pro-democracy protesters leading the unrest on the streets of Egypt? While protesters of all ages have all been spotted participating, the youth generation—bonded together by the Internet— is significantly influencing the rising movement in the country.

TIME’s cover story takes a closer look into the pro-democracy protesters. The organizers are young, but maybe not as young as you think. Check out American Morning’s preview of the piece with its author Bobby Ghosh, deputy international editor of TIME.

What other countries in the Middle East and North Africa have rising youth movements? Find out here:

    People of the Earth must wake up rather than support the fraudulent intentions of all acts of war. Threats of war and the creation of enemies serve to keep the masses under control by falsely arousing fearful emotions. Humanity's challenge is to understand the effects of war through time and learn. There are only a few who want to kill, and few are obsessed with destroying others. There are MANY who want Earth to live and thrive. Will the Many or the few control the world? Will the Many create the world they want, or will the few succeed with their desperate, despotic game plan to separate humanity and destroy life? At the end of the day, through their audacious acts and assaults on life, the few may well succeed in waking up the Many to the value of freedom, the power of the mind, and the endurance of the spirit.
    (Excerpt from "Path of Empowerment", 2004.) There is only LOVE or Fear. Only two things exist to choose from. Which will it be?

    It is time for oppressive governments to change. It is time for dictators to be ousted or jailed. It is time for the world to wake up and become totally free. I believe it is essential to take out any leader who thinks they should rule with an iron hand just to keep power. It is time for the wealthy to step aside from their positions of power in the world. After all, who is the majority in the world? the Rich or Poor? What is wrong with people? Do they really think the wealthy know how to do things better? I personally am very tired of the idiots we have in power all over the world. Mubarak MUST leave.
