Owen Sound ON — With Earth day sneaking up on him, Jerry Hathaway had to really pull it together to honor the planet he calls home. It would have been a lot easier if he would have remembered ahead of time, that way he could have planned something.
As he stared at his giant tire fire on his lot, he thought what can I do to show the Earth that I love it and am committed to keeping it here. Suddenly, it hit him, what if ran into the fire and removed a tire so that it wouldn’t be burned into the atmosphere. He scoped out the fire to see which tire would be the easiest to grab. On the count of three, he heroically grabbed a tire that had not yet ignited.
“Everyone has to do their part if we want this Earth to survive another generation. This tire signifies my commitment to that. I won’t burn it until tomorrow so that there are fewer toxic substances being let out today,” Jerry opined. “Well wait a minute, look at this, this tire is new and shouldn’t have been there. Goes to show when you do something good, the universe repays you.”
It’s always great when community members can sacrifice a little individually for the betterment of the whole. Jerry can really be proud of his sacrifice and even will have a nice reminder of his contribution. A burned hand that definitely needs some aloe, like now.
