Lets all try to be better, peace.

"I witnessed this sanitation employee return a trash can to the side door of an elderly lady's home this morning. After speaking with her, I learned her mobility is limited and this man does this for her every week. It may seem so insignificant to you or me, but to her it's greatly appreciated! Small acts of kindness, such as this, will not change the world, but it changes her world. I didn't get your name sir, but you are awesome!"

every body needs to slow down

Manmade materials now outweigh all living matter in Earth. Plastic alone is greater in mass than all land and marine creatures combined.
And that’s not even including waste.
These are two findings from research published in the journal Nature, which noted that humanity’s footprint on the globe has doubled every 20 years since the beginning of the 20th century.
The aim of the research was to measure and illustrate the real balance between humans and nature, countering the widespread belief in ‘the immensity of the globe and the seeming infinity of the natural world.’
The production of concrete, metal, plastic, bricks and asphalt now exceeds the living biomass on Earth, including every single plant, animal and organism, it says. It also found that, on average, every person on the planet is responsible for the creation of anthropogenic mass greater than their body weight each week.
Researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, studied changes in biomass and human-made mass from 1900 to now. They used dry weight estimates, excluding water, and defined anthropogenic mass as the mass embedded in inanimate solid objects made by humans. It doesn’t include waste.
The paper even makes the claim that its findings should define our current historical era.
‘The impacts of these activities have been so abrupt and considerable that it has been proposed that the current geological epoch be renamed the Anthropocene,’ it says.

Great store, read a book.

It’s spring now and the end of the toughest week in recent memory. Our Café neighbors are closed for the duration and our amazing crew of booksellers have been let go. 😢 Cedric and Chris are here for phone orders and curbside service only. We’re always open on the web (CityLightsNC.com) for New & Used Books, eBooks, Audiobook Downloads, Gift Card/Codes, etc. We’re attempting to juggle competing goals, but mainly we want people to be okay and we hope to be in a position to reopen our doors once we’re through the pandemic.

We are taking every precaution to keep ourselves and our community safe . That being said...We will be at your house every week on your scheduled pick up day. If there is anything we can do to assist you during this time please don't hesitate to call the office or ask your driver. The only thing we ask of you is that you make sure bags containing trash are securely tied to help protect us. Together we can do this. Stay safe out there.

If you know this little guy or his family, please contact the Jackson County shelter at 828-586-6138. Please share so that if he DOES have a family, we can get him back to them. THANKS.
