Destroyers of worlds


Ick
Delray Beach, FL, December 2010


When I thought of this week's Thematic theme, By land, sea or air - click here to share your own - I didn't think I'd be focusing on discarded cigarettes in a dimly lit pharmacy parking lot. But the more I looked at this picture, the more I realized how much it fit.

We really aren't such great shepherds of our land, of the tremendous resources we've been gifted. This moment in the shadowy light reminded me that there are others out there who still don't get it.

Your turn: How can we become better shepherds of our planet?

as a former smoker (3 months into quitting) the image in this picture sickens me.

it is one thing to be a smoker, it is another to be a slob...

there are trash cans everywhere!

we need to care about more than ourselves...

humans are such selfish creatures.

now THAT's disgusting! (just as bad...is while hiking through the woods...a,long a trail...to see tossed cigarette butts and empty plastic water bottles)

people just need to THINK and CARE...and be AWARE!
