Happy Independence Day to everyone. We have a great nation.
But it’s dirty with trash and litter and junk strewn everywhere on every street and along every sidewalk. It debases our communities.
It’s time we celebrated the U.S.A. in a different – and more frequent – manner.
Herewith, let’s declare the first Saturday of each month to be Neighborhood Pick Up Your Path Day.
It’s a simple way for sidewalk patriots to honor our country. Devote your daily walk, however long or short it may be, to cleaning up your neighborhood. Take a bag with you and pick up what you can. It doesn’t have to be a lot, just enough to make your neighborhood a little cleaner, a little more welcoming. (I’ll promote the first Saturday regularly on blog posts.)
For the calendar-minded, here are some near-term Saturdays through the end of this year that you can mark down right now:
Of course, Pickupyourpath.com would love to have photos of your trash exploits. You can post them to the Pick Up Your Path Facebook page, too.
