Trash in the ladies room
Today I was washing my hands at the sink in the ladies room when I noticed someone dropped a paper towel that missed the bin and landed on the floor.
No big deal, huh?
I thought about it, in the way I think of things.
I used the paper towel I was drying my hands with and picked it up off the floor and put it in the bin.
No big deal, really.
But it caused this thought to stir…
If I didn’t, who would?
The janitor tomorrow morning? One of the next four people who saw it? The next twenty-seven?
And that is the way of the world.
If I don’t, who will?
Pick up the trash on the floor?
Give a stranger a helping hand?
Give back as much as I take?
Smile at someone as I walk by them just because?
Collectively, we all likely want a better world.
Where is it going to start? I might not be able to contribute wealth, change a law or move a mountain, but I can do something. We can all do something. Who wants to?
I do. So I will.
