    Anderson, you must be extreamly happy today. I remember you broadcasting from unknown location in Cairo in the revolution showing the world what is going on. You and many other journalists took a lot of risks to expose the truth and that helped these peaceful revolution a lot and I know people of Egypt is greatful for you today. We are greateful for you to have such a courage. You lived and experience a significant history making moment. This is great. Today I am an American but I feel like I am an Egyptian too. I share their happiness with tears and I am hopeful that we will see a successful democratic state of Egypt the future. Thank you for bringing the world the news that is truthful and proper.

    The road ahead will not be easy. The hope is that the People who was able to peacefully topple a brutally repressive regime will be able to peacefully establish Democracy, Liberty, and Dignity as natural rights to all the people.

    Goodevening Anderson and the whole CNN/360 Team,

    From the minute they announced our Freedom in Egypt and I have wanted to send this to you and tell the whole CNN team, in Egypt and in the US, that this Revolution couldnt have happened without the International coverage and your honesty in your broadcast.

    After watching Mubarek speak yesterday, I hope this is not a sick game of "Mubarek says", Mubarek does not say". I pray for the Egyptians that this is truly his final answer.

    Anderson, you made history!
    I wonder how the Hungarian revolt in 1956 would have turned out had there been an Anderson Cooper and CNN to keep the world's conscience and attention focused on us? I was 18 yrs old and out on the streets against the Russian occupation and Communist "Cult of personality" rule...but the tanks in Budapest were Russian and they actually shot at us and killed thousands... Thank you, America for giving me the opportunity to build a life for myself...
    Thank you, Anderson and CNN for not abandoning the Egyptian people.
