Today’s earth day and when I told my daughter about it, she asked if I would drive her to the cemetery so she could pick up trash to help the planet. I was thrilled she wanted to do something good and productive. We stayed for over 2 hours and she picked up garbage all by herself!
I just pushed my younger child in the stroller while Irie walked around straightening flowers and collecting trash. We left with 2 big bags full!
Here’s Irie’s story:

We went to the Cedar Hill Cemetery in Suffolk, Virginia to pick up trash and clean up the graveyard.
