Hope was lost when we saw that the wall was vandalized by a black marker. Someone scribbled lines with a black marker to prevent anyone from writing. And a message was left on the top right corner saying: "Lebanon would be better if there were less retards". And a small drawing of male genitalia was added.
Today, that message along with the scribles are no longer there! They have been disappearing slowly for almost a week now.
This is how it looked like on June 7th, 2011: Barely any scribbles left.
And this is what it looks like now.It turns out that Alex, a shop owner that is close to the wall, was one of the people cleaning it.
I went today. And spoke to him. I didn't mention that I'm one of the bozos who stenciled that wall.
It didn't matter, he offered me a detergent, water and a sponge. And together, we cleaned the wall and removed the scribbles with it's black marker message.
Margaret Thatcher once said "there is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families."
Well, Margaret, that's society right there.
