ALEXANDRIA, Egypt – People are gathering in front of the train station in the Sidi Gaber section of the city, demanding that President Mohamed Morsi leave office.
Holding Egyptian flags and signs asking the president to leave, the crowd seems hopeful, strong and determined. The event is peaceful, and participants are kind and helpful.

I felt safe there. Everyone seems to want the same thing – a new election and a new president.
Morsi has been in office a little more than a year. Though his term is four years, protesters don’t want to wait that long. They want a presidential election soon.
