in your eyes when you wake,
I want you to do me a favour
and forget everything
that happened between
you and yourself last night.
Just carry on, don’t think about it.
Let it go, and live another day.
I did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge today, and there’s something I would like to address. I honestly do not condone wasting clean water by any means, but for those people turning on their ‘holier-than-thou’ attitude towards those who are raising awareness and having fun at the same time, there are a couple other things you could spend your time voicing your disgust against. If you want to talk about waste, here is some food for thought:
- Clean water is used to clean major streets, usually at night, in most Western cities. Nobody makes donations to a worthy cause as a result.
- Clean water is used to water trees, plants, and gardens on private properties, as well as city properties.
- People, like yourself, may have, at some point in their lives, wasted food in some form. That food could have gone to a hungry person somewhere in the world, but you just threw that away.
- THE FOOD AND GROCERY INDUSTRY THROWS NON-EXPIRED FOOD STUFFS AWAY EVERY SINGLE NIGHT AND THEY TAKE ISSUE WITH GIVING TO HOMELESS SHELTERS OR THE POOR BECAUSE A) THEY DO NOT WANT TO BE LIABLE FOR ILLNESSES/DAMAGES CAUSED BY DONATING UNWANTED FOOD B) IT’S CHEAPER FOR THEM TO THROW THE FOOD AWAY.
These are just a few small examples. So before you really start going on about how much water is being wasted in this campaign, step back and think about how much we waste EVERYTHING in the west in general.
are always on
in your eyes.
I hope no one
ever has the
to turn them off.
