Yesterday I visited the city dump for the first time. It's impossible to imagine the magnitude of how big it is without seeing it in person. Vultures flew overhead and the smell was undeniable. Down where the trucks are, people sorted through trash. Some were workers and others were trying to find anything valuable that they could sell. The problem is that anything that could be sold for more than a few pennies was already gone by the time it reaches here. A few years ago, a mudslide killed a lot of people, including kids who would search the trash. After that, everyone was required to wear name tags so they could be identified in case it happened again. Many of these people live right on the outskirts of the dump. Thankfully, a few organizations have cropped up recently to help keep the kids in school and provide some assistance. I said to my friend that in the USA, we don't always understand what hard work is. These people sort through trash for 12 hours a day to barely survive. They work so hard. And then I cried. I cried because our world is so, so broke . I cried because children sell trash. I cried because it can be so hard to feel like things can ever get better through small efforts. But then I remembered all of you. And I remembered what we can do together. I remembered that if we all stand up and say "I refuse to let this be the kind of world that I live in," that maybe, just maybe we can change it. I remembered that you and I are powerful.
