    Enough
    Broken bottles and rusted pieces of glass
    Crumpled up newspaper lost in the grass
    Flooding concrete plaguing our trees
    Can this be the environment that goes on around me?

    Toxins and insecticides splashed onto our food

    oceans filling with black grim oil
    Sea life headed doe fatal doom
    This is what we are to consume?

    Mills bleeding out iron casting out fumes
    Airlines leaking destructive gases
    Weapons of devastation tested at isolated sites
    And this is the air that sustains life?

    Is there something we can do 
    Maybe raise awareness to those closes to you

  • Reflection Question
    Health More Fruits and Veggies
    How does eating more fruits and vegetables and less meat positively affect yourself, other people, and our planet?

    Christine May 7/15/2020 1:04 PM
    Eating a more plant-based diet reduces the greenhouse gas emissions and water expenditure of industrialized agriculture. We can all benefit from eating more plants.

    It was a perfect day to go for a hike so I picked up my little brothers and headed to Fontana. We found an amazing trail to hike with a small waterfall. Water was freezing but after the hour hike it was a nice way to cool down.
