The symbolic act of picking up a piece of trash

The way you clean up the world is by picking up one piece of trash at a time.

It isn’t your responsibility but you are there in that moment to make a difference.

It isn’t your job but someone has to do it.

You won’t be thanked for it; there is no recognition, no award. No one will notice what you did.

It’s only one piece of trash today. But tomorrow, you can do it again. And again. Until finally you have filled bags.

Maybe someone will want to join your movement.

And the message can spread.

We can all do better to pick up the trash around us in a physical and emotionally sense.
