Sharing this was on my mind for some time and I thought posting it as early as possible would be better. —
Here we stand complaining about every little thing,ignoring a vast pool of blessings we’re bestowed with and then there are these amazing souls!
I don’t think any occupation is considered more degrading than of
Garbage men/waste collectors, and I don’t see a point in it, someone cleaning your space for your convenience and letting their body parts in contact with filth throughout the day just because of the trash YOU made. I think we should be more than thankful to them or at least pass a Salam or generous smile to light up their day.
Just today I saw this man being berated as to why he was constantly collecting rubbish from the tables and disturbing people while eating, it felt so wrong to me that we see this nonsense on daily basis and say nothing because it’s none of our business.
This is just one person I’m taking about, there are hundreds of them street kids, old men and women and of the younger generation who would be so worn out of this untidy business,who would so be wishing that some day the stink of trash would leave their lives and they would be able to see people in their eyes. Not to say this profession is humiliating but no one wants to spend their lives in a constant circle of foulness. If you cannot help them to clean your trash up and provide them with a helping hand or kind words please don’t hurt them in any way for their souls are already having much of it.
