Social Disorder by Susan L.
As I cleaned up the garbage that had been dumped near the main door of the Krasman centre: bags, household items and cigarette butts cast off from the apartments above, it raised a question. When did we adults: parents, teachers, community members stop teaching our children respect and concideration for others? This was a light cleanup. Previously there have been mattresses, broken furniture, as well as bags of household waste piled near our door. The township cleaned up a particularly huge pile after we called and complained. The landlord wasn't honouring our request to have it removed. We gave him plenty of time. The situation has been chronic. Tenant after tenant has used the area near our door as a dump.Most of them are in the twenty to thirty age range except the landlord. This brings me back to my original question. Somewhere along the line we failed our children. Our lease is up this fall. Please pray that we find a new location that meets all our needs. Financially, parking, and inside. Thank you.
