Today, on my walk into Town I noticed an abundance of new trash along the roadway.  I usually bend my old self over and fill my pockets with cigarette packs, coffee cups, PBR and Budwiser cans but today I would have to have taken Santa's bag to pick up the road.  I wonder how we can observe such a special holiday as Thanksgiving that celebrates the bounty of the land and the link to native America with such despoilment.

I don't think that the Bud drinkers and fast food smokers can be reeducated but we can all make an effort to pick up the residue that a society of abundance leaves in the wake of consumption.  Shame on the people who litter it is a failure of education, religion, society, and family.

It only takes a moment to switch from the "have" to "have not" side. It is a great teacher and has left many wiser and more compassionate afterwards.

Maybe, what we could do is, have the people on the states dole, pick up the trash along the sides of the road, then were killing two birds with one stone, 1st were cleaning up the community. 2nd were giving people exercise,( that probably need it anyhow) so were saving money in the Maine care system! As well as giving somebody some self esteem.. ( just A thought)
