    The Woman of War – a poem by Roy Roden 

     

       Her voice is soft but roars like thunder.

    Clothed in brilliant armor without even a whisper  

    She wields her sword casting demons asunder

    As she rides with Christ her Lord and Savior

     

      Exuding grace and strength regal in stature 

    In worship she falls prostrate as a willing captive 

    To the eternal love of her heavenly Father

    It takes about a minute to produce a straw.  One straw is used for about 10 minutes.  It takes around 100 years for that straw to decompose.  

    The math is pretty simple.

    I picked up this McCafe drink in a parking lot.  Yesterday I picked up 2 Dunkin Donut drink containers right on the beach.  It’s sad.

    The good news is lots of small local eateries are really stepping it up by switching to paper or providing straws only when requested.

    When I pick up a cup, bottle or wrapper on the beach I don’t know who left it there but I can identify where it was purchased.  I really feel companies especially the big boys need to take more responsibility for the trash their products create and to help educate and provide alternatives for their customers.  I was glad to see Bud Light had recycle containers for their cans at event right by the ocean.  It’s a small but necessary step.
