|No trash on this road in Cloutierville like there is other places where people don't cooperate|
Now I hears that excuse all the time, I tells Nancy, I got better things I should do. I explains to her, "When that is the reason we don't clean up a mess, then problems they grow on and on. As one feller said once you gotta try to cooperate with other people, but you need to act to get things done.
"We do what we can when we sees it and don't worry bout anyone else. We just keep doin' what we got to do, and soon other folks see and start helpin' and that's how things get done best.
Each of us sees somethin' different. Each of us does what we can. Some of us feed folks when they're hungry. Some people help folks that is sick. You and me we can pick up the trash' cause that's what's for us here to do."
Then Nancy she looks down the road just a bit and she says, all excited, "Look Granny, there's more over there" and I can't even run fast enough to catch that child who understood just what I said and can't wait to go do her share.
