Sad Signs of Spring

Last week I went to one of my favorite places along the Delaware River to look for signs of spring.  There was little evidence that spring had reached the shores of the Delaware in southern New Jersey, but sadly many signs that the trash of the Delaware River had.

These are not pretty pictures; they are a statement of society’s lack of concern for our world and the quality of life for future generations.  If we continue to trash our planet, we will no longer be able to enjoy the peaceful flow of our beautiful rivers.

  1. I used to live along the Ohio River, and the spring floods would wash up all the trash each year. I don’t understand people or why the trash gets thrown into the rivers and on the land. These images are, indeed, sad signs of spring.

    • I don’t understand it either, especially now in the twenty-first century. Thanks for your comment.

  2. I can’t felieve people still throw trash into the rivers, on the ground, in vacant lots – it’s incomprehensible.

Your words matter...
