Did you clean up?

When you went for a picnic in the park did you clean up your mess and take it with you? Did you properly dispose your trash? Is it so very difficult to carry it home or put it in a park provided receptacle?

When you went fishing did you clean up your trash? Was it you who left all the balled up fishing line and Styrofoam containers on the bank? If you left that mess, you are an ass-hat.

While on your hike did you properly dispose of or take home with you your granola wrappers or did you drop them on the ground like an idiot?

Did you toss your water bottle along the road when you finished it? If you did, you are a selfish pig.

When did people quit teaching their children to leave a cleaner place behind you than how you found it? My family’s golden rule was that when you were out communing with nature, you cleaned up your mess and any other you found.

So someone else dropped their candy wrapper, it doesn’t mean that it is okay for you to do it too. A respectful, caring person not only picks up their own trash but they clean up any other trash they see around them.

I know of a few people, other than The Curmudgeon and me that do this. How unfortunate that I only know of a FEW people who do it.

Please people, teach your children to take care of the world. The easiest way to start is to teach them not to litter.
