Your basic utility services are the vital backbone of any society. . . without the, standards quickly go downhill.

thanks for this post Dandelion... yes, VERY important things are often overlooked in any "war".... this must be utterly uncomfortable and a dangerous health risk.....

We take it weekly for granted that our garbage is going to be taken care off.
Thanks for sharing Dandelion.

We need to provide safety to people running away from oppression and war, we need to open our boarders, and provide help to all that need it. We need to make sure communities can look after themselves, and create a cohesive society the world over.

I hope the streets get cleaned up before more people suffer, from disease, that this waste can cause.

“They’ll never solve it,” he said. “They’ll just put a Band-Aid on the wound, even if it’s critical.”
"Due to rampant government corruption"...
Thank you Dandelion

I am waiting for Carrie, Jess, Eleonora and especially Sam to exercise their wisdom and to explain why this piling garbage is, as always, Israeli fault.

Couldn't resist could you Bob. At least you could of who starts things, eh?

Any compassion for the people in Lebanon or at least where the story has mentioned Beirut?

Between you and Justin....what can I say.

You know it use to be a part of civility that others names were not brought out on a thread that they were not even a part of.

Can we not at least start there?

Corruption has the deepest roots and is the hardest to really root out.
Thanks Dandelion.
