The rain was torrential. The sanitation worker was in the yard standing near his truck, waiting to begin his route. In an attempt to get out of the downpour, he jumped into the back of the truck, since going inside the building was not an option. It was Memphis, Tennessee and the sanitation worker was black, thus barred from the terminal reserved for the white workers. Without knowing anyone was in the back of the truck, another worker pushed the button to activate the closing and locking of the back of the truck. Even though it was empty the locking automatically caused the crushing mechanism inside to start. The black worker was crushed to death in minutes.

Our group had a lovely Associate meeting on February 18 at Sr. Theresa’s apartment.

Sr. Mary Corbett presented a video, “Laudato Si ... A Canadian Response”. This video’s focus was on the Care of our Common Home. As children of God we have a responsibility to care for all of creation and to protect the Earth for the future generations. Through programs such as "Give It Up For The Earth" we become educated and aware of our responsibility to keep God’s creation from being destroyed by ignorance and human error.
