If he had a single tear yesterday…

I was thinking about the Indian and how he was really sad about all of that litter. That video impacted me as a child and I wondered if there really were Indians canoeing around the city in full regalia. If he had a lone tear 30 years ago, he would probably have a full blown nervous breakdown after watching the Story of Stuff. We as a society have gotten better about not throwing garbage out of car windows while driving down the highway but the industrial pollution is far worse.

The Indian weeps because we have gotten so far removed from nature. It something to be revered and we as a society have stretched its resiliency beyond capacity.

There is hope. People are realizing this and making an about face. They are recycling more than ever, and have become informed consumers. Taking the time to examine where, who and how something was made before you blindly throw it in the cart. That reflective act is a powerful thing we can do to comfort the Indian in us all.
