A beautiful story, Becky. I am the biggest cleaner-upper of the litter I see around me- I try to think a kind thought for those people most of the time but sometimes...
oh, well... I'll just keep on picking it up!

Oh beautiful, and I think this is exactly what Gandhi meant by "Be the change you want to see in the world" and it will spill out further, like a domino effect :-)

Beautiful way to induce change without resorting to violence :)

Now this sound like a lady I could (should?) emulate. The only times I've ever changed people's minds were by positive example.

Thanks for sharing!

PS spelling mistakes only worry me in professional publications...

great story! now if only people would do that in India. lots of garbage all over and people throw it into the ocean, out bus or train windows, wherever. people thought I was weird when I carried my garbage around with me and refused to throw it on the street...really made me sad and mad sometimes on my travels....

What a lovely, lovely story. I'll remember that the next time I'm picking up somebody's trash...around here it's likely to be one of my kids' messes...

This is a beautiful story and the world would definitely be a better place if things always worked out this way. Some people, however, never respond to gentle tactics such as these, and firmer actions are required. It's the fine line we constantly tread when communicating with others, that of showing respect and compassion, but also standing up for the very same. I am glad it worked out the way it did for Audrey.
