It seems like every day I was pulling weeds from my garden. I noticed that part of the problem was that it was coming over from my neighbor’s yard. First, I tried to create a fence to block it from coming over. That didn’t work for long. Then, I dug a trench, but somehow it was able to hop over it. Finally, I went to my neighbor and we discussed ways to get rid of the weeds in both our gardens. There are plenty of weeds in our towns, neighborhoods, communities, and if we want our wonderful lives to continue we’ll need to address these areas of decay that are underdeveloped and filled with hopelessness. Or one day it will reach our own garden.
