Cleaning House, Cleaning Up

The headline caught my eye, so I read this article on AOL.com.


I was astounded.

Can you imagine?

After more than two weeks of protests centered in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, Egyptians were greeted with the news yesterday that Mubarek had left the city and was sequestered in his residence in the resort city of Sharm el Sheik in southern Egypt.

[As an aside, Husband had been looking for travel bargains approximately ten days ago and reported that we could fly to Sharm el Sheik from Amsterdam for 29 Euros one way. No surprise that this deal was availableĀ in the midst of a country undergoing what appears to have been a full-fledged revolution. Go figure.]

Last night there was rejoicing and dancing in the streets.

Despite all that they have been through in the past two+ weeks (and indeed the previous 30 years), Egyptians wanted to celebrate this historic move toward what we all hope will be democracy.

And today? They took to the streets again, only this time they were armed with brooms and trash bags.

Why? Because they care enough about their country to clean up the mess that was left behind by those protesting (and those countering the protesters).

Seriously, how amazing is that???
