I kinda lost my footing on this effort—literally. Because of a foot surgery, I couldn’t walk my block to pick up trash. It was heartbreaking to observe that the area became a littered mess. So much so that someone even commented about it on a community webpage board. I have learned that I was not having the impact I hoped I would. I hoped that children and adults alike would enjoy the cleanliness so much that they would stop littering. That’s not how people change. They change with direct education. Until and unless there is direct education, there will be no change.
