"Hey kids, don't litter. If you do, you're a quitter," I remark to the kids as they drop their candy wrappers to the ground.

"Whatever gramps," they say as they ride off on their bikes.

Ah, they don't understand. One day they'll realize we only have one Earth. One day they'll learn how important it is to protect our Earth.  Until then I'll carry their burden one piece of trash at a time.
