What we leave behind is a reflection of who we are.
Each of us scatters bits and pieces — tangible or otherwise — along the roadside, impacting the lives of so many other people. Poetry or pop bottles, love notes or legislation, debate or deaf messages; every act or action leaves some kind of a mark.
This residue becomes our reality. Not all of it is good.
We simply cannot continue consuming and assuming everything will be okay.
We have a choice to let it remain, or to clean up after ourselves.
Things are getting out of hand; it has been that way for quite some time.
Each of us has a responsibility to make this world a better place. Individually, and together, we’ve got a hell of a lot of work to do.
However, we need to be realistic. It can’t happen all it once (it has taken years to arrive at this state), but consistent, incremental action can halt, if not reverse, this devastation.
Are you up to the challenge?
