Wake up boys, there's a light at the window,
I can hear someone knocking on the door,
There are voices in the street,
And the sound of running feet,
And they whisper the word --

There are men coming down from the valleys,
There are tall ships lying off the coast,
And they carry the light,
In the dark of the night,
Like a whisper in the wind --

- Chris De Burgh

Another revolution occurred in the world without bloodshed. Nicknamed "the velvet revolution", it forced resignation of Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze in Tbilisi. This shows that "Nobody can go against their own people" and "people is the source of all power". And if all people are willing and guided to right path by true leaders they can achieve anything. Read more here.

"By his resignation, he avoided spilling blood in the country. ..... History will judge him kindly." said Mr. Saakashvili, the 35-year-old leader of the opposition National Movement who is seen as a radical pro-Western reformer. We must all remember many revolutions even ones in our country were not achieved without bloodshed.

Lets hope for a better Georgia and wish that we can contribute in revolutions which becomes inevitable in our lives whenever we are in similar situations.
