When People Get Together
Something revolutionary is happening in Diani. People are fed up. Their voices choir concerns for their future and the future of generations to come. An awakening is afoot. Communities are coming together and addressing these concerns with good old fashion elbow grease. They are getting the job done. White House, is a thoughtful example of such a community.
Usafi Tuesday was a spontaneous event born out of spontaneous action. A few community members got together, decided on an action (clean up the neighborhood), picked a day, bought gloves and trash bags, and got on with it. What started with a handful of do gooders, turned into a mob of criminally obsessed cleaning fanatics. All manner of equipment and supplies popped up from empathic observers turned cleaning crew. The support was overwhelming and the enthusiasm was a humbling reminder of our common wants and needs.
