Random Acts of Citizenship: Pickin’ Up Trash at Inauguration

January 22, 2009

So our attempts at keeping Inauguration Day litter free on the National Mall may not have been an entire success, but it seems more than a few people were inspired by President Obama’s call for personal responsibility during his Inaugural address.  We flip cammed a bunch of people sticking around and bagging trash that others left behind.

We know it ain’t no big thing, but it’s still an awesome example of the kind of commitment to citizenship we can make right now.  Service doesn’t have to be a big to-d0; it can be small, personal acts of personal responsibility that show deference to our country and each other.  Yeah, super gay – we know, but we love musical theater so we don’t give a shhhhhhh- bomb, baby.
