Stories of Kindness from Around the World

On My Walk

--by lewski711, posted Nov 29, 2019
I haven't been playing competitive basketball recently like I have for the last 40 years, due to some health issues. Nevertheless, I still shoot around and I do a lot more walking.

One of my walks is a two-mile stint that always takes me by a bus stop with a trash can. I have been making it a habit to pick up a piece of trash as I approach the trash can.

One day, I saw a bag on the ground and used that to pick up more trash. Since then, I leave the house with a bag and my walk becomes a clean-up mission.

I have become that old man that I used to see walking the neighborhood picking up trash! 😂🤣
