Roadkill, It's What's For Dinner

It occurred to me today that despite our current US economic crisis and failing markets worldwide, China excluded of course, that perhaps life does go on. I started thinking that life isn’t all about money even though that’s currently what’s on everyone’s mind (mine included). The fact is there are people in third world countries that don’t have economies to worry about; they have to worry about more serious issues like “what am I going to eat today?” or “damn, I don’t feel like walking 3 miles to get that drink of water.” Most of us don’t have much to spare now-a-days, but each of us can still do our part. I’m going to stand up for what I believe in. Everyone knows that we are a wasteful nation. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t pass a dead deer on the side of the road or some other unfortunate animal that didn’t make it across that busy intersection. If each and every one of us took the time to pull over and collect that roadkill, freeze and overnight it to the starving children of Somalia; the world would be a better place. Who’s with me?
