I shouldn’t be writing about this if people are responsible enough and are doing their share in protecting our beaches. How hard is it to clean up after ourselves and not take anything that isn’t ours? Isn’t that elementary? Wait-we’ve been taught that since preschool!!! And in my days, we were taught that before we went to school and probably before we could even talk!!
What am I talking about??? I hate the mentality that since you already paid for a certain fee (or whatever), there should be people to clean up after you. Hello?!? The world does not revolve around you. The ocean is most definitely not yours! It belongs to the Lord for us to take care of. They are for the future. And the future means our children and our children’s children and so on. So is it OK for our kids to loiter since we Took care of it for them? NO! I said it belongs to the future, which means if “they are” existing then “they are” (present tense) which means they should preserve it for “the” future. For those who are to come. Those who are yet to exist and see the wonder and beauty of God’s creation.
Another self explanatory ranting but so many people need to be reminded of. When you go to the beach, you follow two simple rules for mother nature. This is a no-brainer. Every good steward knows this!!!
Leave nothing but footprints.
Take nothing but pictures.
