A Perfect End to a Perfect Revolution: Massive Volunteer Clean-Up at Tahrir Square |

A perfectly civil end to a perfectly civil revolution. After Mubarak’s resignation and the euphoric celebrations that lasted through the night and well into the next day, it is time to leave a place that will forever be etched in our memory and in our hearts. Protesters are adamant to crown the success of the revolution by bowing out in style and leaving Tahrir Square cleaner than when we found it. A massive clean up campaign, the sort that is required after a million guests, was under way today. Rather than picking up and going home, exhausted protesters organized themselves into armies of volunteers who picked up trash, put away debris, washed walls, and even painted. This is the new Egypt: taking ownership of your country.
