    - Verybecoming, CNN iReport producer

    It's Friday but it felt like weekend. In the morning Independence Square was full of people and by mid-day it got packed. People came to help in any way they could: cleaning the streets from remains of burned tires, rebuilding barricades, making and serving sandwiches, encouraging each other. This sunny day felt like spring cleaning, like taking care of our home together! As people joined to bring order to the streets you could see on their inspired faces that they were already dreaming of working as hard together on building in Ukraine a new civilization based on values such as faith, solidarity, dignity, respect for an individual and clear and equal rules of the game for all!
