Respect not scorn

Re: Green Crows, Sept. 1 – 7

What a great story! I’ve always hoped to read more about people who live this way. Although some may have behavioural foibles, they seem to go about their daily bottle-collecting with such determination. If we put that kind of productive effort into our day, the output would be huge. They know what they want and create it daily, and ask nothing from society. How many of us could say that about our lives? Is their drive and determination any different than the striving of our “captains” of industry? Could a CEO even keep up with these people? These people deserve our respect, not our scorn.
