They were painting over all the vandalism on the wall, repainting the yellow and black stripes on the curb and cleaning up trash. Zayneb wanted to help out and painted some curbs. She ruined her favorite jeans and doesn't even care. She felt so proud of herself and to be a part of something like this. I joined the event on FB and encourage anyone else in Hurghada to do so as well.
I thought about what I said the other night, that "someone" should do something about the graffiti. Instead of just saying it, these people actually took action. They organized a group and did something themselves. They are the hope and change I see in this country. My friend and I felt really bad just sitting there and not helping, all we could do is buy them some cold drinks. I will definitely be taking part in the projects to come.
