Nowadays, there are many problems in our nation. These Problems affect people every day, everywhere, around the world. Responsibility towards our communities is an extreme international internal sensation. It is inside of every one of us!! “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” This quote by John F. Kennedy rings true. People should take more responsibility for solving problems that affect their communities or the nation in general because society should be more self-reliant. Every little thing that people try to do counts. We all need to work and volunteer to make our society much better and civilized. Additionally, the people of the community should take more action in helping out the environment so that they can enjoy living in a clean area without impediments stopping the sanitation of the vicinity.
Citizens should be aware of global warming and should start helping out to stop pollution in the area. They can start recycling paper and canned products and collecting trash rather than littering. People in Los Angeles made a group together called LA’s Watershed Protection Program and helped to stop pollution. Some things they did were dispose of trash properly, used environmentally safe products, and recycled their used motor oil and filters. This is why the people should take more responsibility in helping out the environment to stop pollution in the future.
Government support is helpful; however, people should not always depend on them. People need to take charge in order for the nation to prosper economically and environmentally. A nation is defined by the standard of life of its people. Thus, if the people work together to improve their lives, they will be improving the status of their communities, and consequently, their nation.
