Every year, a lot of devout Catholics visit the Grotto in Bulacan during the Holy Week. They mainly go there for the Station of the Cross wherein the scenes are depicted in lifesize statues. My parents and I went there last Good Friday and man, the place was crowded!  It was only 8:30 am but there was already a mob at the entrance to the Stations.

It was really hot that day, from the sweltering heat of the sun, the crowd and the burning candles. I guess it's all part of the sacrifice. But apart from that, one thing I've noticed that made me sad was the litter lying all around the place. I guess some of the people who walked to Grotto on Good Thursday spent the previous night there. But *ugh* the sight of plastic bags, used cartons/ newspapers (which were used as sleeping mats) and wrappers on the landscape was really an eyesore. People who went there for penance didn't think twice about destroying what God made for us :(  It's saddening and ironic in a way.

I guess despite the disastrous effects (tsunamis, floods, drought etc.), people don't seem to give that much damn about the environment. I just hope we could exert more effort in caring for Mother Nature. Trash bins are where you should put your garbage not just anywhere you want to chuck it out. A little gesture could go a long way, people!
