Littered With Kindness

img_2316We pretty much take our dogs for a walk everyday.  The length varies, depending on weather and our schedule, but for the most part we try to get them out for a jaunt on a daily basis.  When we walk we choose routes in our area of town, in our neighborhood.  During today’s walk we decided, as our daily act of kindness, that we would take a trash bag along and pick up garbage.  We walked about a mile and a half and ended picking up nearly an entire large kitchen sized bag of garbage.  We couldn’t believe some of the stuff we found.  Everything from an empty liquor bottle to what looked like old rags that had flown off a truck.  A plethora of refuse, just around this particular route in our neighborhood.  It made us feel good to do it.  We actually wondered why we hadn’t done it before.  Just think of how great it would be if everyone did this on theirs walks, even once a week.
