A massive thanks to my son’s godfather Chris for sending me this. If I read another story this year that makes me smile as much as this, then I’ll be a happy man.
So the story….a 64 year-old man, Huseyin Cetinel, in Istanbul wanted to brighten people’s days by painting rainbow colours on the old, grey, crumbling stairs near his house.
When municipal officials sent workers after nightfall to hurriedly repaint the stairs grey, a quiet revolution started on Twitter.
Not only did volunteers come out to repaint those stairs that Huseyin Cetinel had spent hundreds of dollars of his own money on, they started painting other stairs and walkways in other cities around Turkey posting photos on social media.
Britain could certainly benefit from this attitude. Viva le colour revolution!
See it in its full glory:
