LAZINESS DEPICTED


If you look closely into the foreground shadow, you can spot dog poo. You don't have to look closely at the background to see the doggy poop station, complete with trashcan and trash bags.

Franz Kafka wrote, "There art two cardinal sins from which all others spring: Impatience and Laziness." C.S. Lewis wrote, "Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching."

The laziness and absence of integrity depicted here is depressingly obvious. It's baffling how pathetic humans can behave. Or, not behave.

As a teacher whose goal is to teach kids how to improve the world, it's a challenge to remain positive and battle on when I see something like this, almost literally, in my own backyard.

But I will. I have to. In the war against laziness, in the fight against those who have no conception of integrity, we'll all have to.
