Greetings to South Sudan, world’s newest country: A transition years in the making, the country of South Sudan ended years of constant war with the north a few years back and became a country of its own after voting on it democratically six months ago. Amid all the unrest in the world, this is a great thing to see — especially since the leader of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, made an appearance at the ceremonies to give his blessings. Above is a photo by NBA star Luol Deng, who is from the South Sudanese region, watching history happen. It certainly makes the lockout his league is in the midst of seem plainly insignificant. High-fives all around to the democratic process that made this possible.
