How surprised I was this morning as I went to the driveway to collect the newspapers to also find a cleverly packaged piece of white supremacist “nationalist” hate-group literature nearby on the ground. After opening it and being repulsed, I then looked around and saw that our house wasn’t the only one on the block to have been so greeted. With the help of my 2-year-old daughter, we walked the block and cleaned up more than a dozen pieces of trash littered along the sidewalk and street.
After writing this, I may come to find out that I inadvertently insulted the work of some local neo-Con blogger’s friends. Nevertheless, the kind of ideology littered along my street this morning is a repulsive affront to true Christian religion and our nation’s founding creed, the Declaration of Independence.
I’m glad to participate in this kind of neighborhood clean-up program: it’s community beautification on multiple levels.
