Letter to the Editor continued from page two men did. I want to say another special Thank You to the student advisors. All of you did a wonderful job and I am very proud of you. Thank you for all of the help and support that you all gave to me during orientation. You all have found a place in my heart and given me something to treasure about my senior year. Don’t ever forget that YouDoMakeA Differ ence and your job is a very special one. I would also like to thank our advisor. Marge Stevens. Without her, I never would have made it through my 4th freshmen orientation. Thanks again to everyone! Dawnyelle Thrush, Chief Student Advisor Recycle, continued from page two I am afraid that recycling for me has be come like slipping an extra five dollars in the collection plate because I know I’m going to outline my research paper during the sermon. Because I recycle most of the time, I can wink at my occasional slackness. Knowing that so many others are recycling. I’ve become less con cerned about my own habits. I have come to regard recycling as a solution to—rather than a symptom of—an ever-growing problem. Now that recycling is easier, both we old- timers and the newly converted should redouble our efforts. But that is only the first step. We must admit that recycling alone is not enough, and we must make our voices heard. As con sumers we should write letters demanding re form from companies that flood the market with wasteful packaging. Public opinion persuaded even the all-mighty McDonalds to mend its ways. As communities we should question our legislators before they spend our tax dollars on yet another recycling program. With our voice and our votes, we should force policy-makers to devote as much attention to reducing trash as they do to recycling it. We must also practice what we preach. Using a coffee mug instead of a paper cup, taking a canvas bag to the grocery store, and using cloth napkins and dish towels in our kitch ens are things we can do easily every day— small thing that make a big difference. As we continue to recycle our garbage, we can begin to revolutionize our thinking.
