Bauble or Babel

Tonight, I walked around the neighborhood after dinner. I passed by this antenna helmet for the second day in a row. Picking it up, I turned it over and read Made In China, and an alarm went off in my head. Is it toxic? Is it dangerous?

I also thought of the people far away who made it, packaged it and brought it to the USA. Then all the folks in the USA who have touched it. I thought about how whatever we do touches another person whom we have never met. And that’s another reason not to litter.

P.S. I’m a graduate of Tennessee, too.
