Yesterday while gadding about, I saw a bike rider, standing at the side of the road, big green garbage bag at hand, picking up the windblown garbage freed from its icy snowy prison. No one asked the biker to do this. No one compelled him. No one forced this biker to pick up the spring roadside trash like all those people who are doing their community service, or like all those community groups who do it. He was just doing it.
Mr. Biker. I like you.
Some things exist in our modern world just to toss away. We need a lot less of that. And we need a lot more of us to act on our impulse that leads us to do for our common good.
