What We Throw Away


On the south side of Chicago, next to the lines of the South Shore railroad which can whisk you to the bright lights of downtown, or out to the shores and picturesque dunes of a beach on Lake Michigan in Indiana, is a large mountain. Impossible you say? Not so, for there is a mountainous landfill, full of things nobody wanted anymore. We throw away many things but one thing we should throw away is a negative or bad attitude. Not only do they bring everyone else down, but they interfere with us finding any shred of happiness. How can we be one with the universe, if we cannot even be one with our own peace of mind?
