I couldn’t believe what I was seeing…

Waiting in traffic for the light to change, I didn’t realize my eyes were softly gazing at a black Mercedes, shiny black with darkened windows.  Although my eyes were softly gazing, the car registered in my mind.  “Nice car,” I would have said.  My eyes continued to gaze toward the car.  Just before the light changed, I saw the door on the driver’s side open, I witnessed an arm reach out, and I saw a hand drop a McDonald’s bag onto the street.

The light changed.  Lanes of cars sped off onto the freeway.

I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, as if in slow motion.  Maybe this is just another edition of Saturday Night Live, I might have been thinking.  But no, this was an ordinary day on an ordinary street – in my community.

Whether we want to believe it or not, whether we choose to live like it or not – change begins with us.  If we want our communities to be clean, safe places, then we need to be clean, safe folks ourselves.  It’s as simple as that.
