action and effect of reflecting
If we think about the word reflection, we mean the action and effect of reflecting. You may also, be thinking carefully about something. This assignment helped me to reflect and understand their true concepts. Last week I had the opportunity to visit a very beautiful park called A.D. (Doug) Barnes Park and is located at 3401 SW 72 AVE. I liked this park from the first moment I saw it. This park is named after the first director who managed the acreage. This director knows the feelings towards nature and was inaugurated since 1977. When I arrived at the park, time went by very quickly, I spent about three hours enjoying the atmosphere of the park. I could see many things happening in the same place. There was a group of young people playing on a basketball court and people walking through the park. There were also picnic families in the centers located inside the park.
Furthermore, there are some exercise equipment and there was a couple doing exercises. In addition to this, there was a children’s playground with channels and swings, and there were about six children playing and riding on the devices of the park with their mothers. When I was walking, through the park I saw a young woman reading a book around a lake that is also inside the park. I am thinking that; this young woman feels relaxed and safe of the place and was also enjoying the lake and the fresh air in the park. I realized how this park has enough space for people to enjoy the fresh air of nature and find this space as relaxation, reflection and enjoyment. After spending some time in the park and having traveled it completely, I realized that the park was quite clean, but there were many people around, children and adults eating and not carrying that food waste to the correct garbage device. Sometimes they were papers or bags of chips and for not throwing it away, the air took it away and that garbage ran through the park through the air so delicious it was.
Then I put on some gloves and picked up the trash I found around the park; there were devices such as plastic, water knobs and plastic spoons, soda cans, papers and food scraps. What struck me the most was that people looked at me strangely and their faces express confusion. At that moment, no one approached me to ask me what I was doing or help me but, after a few minutes I began to observe how the persons were contributing to throw their garbage on the devices. This action that I did was very valuable because I teaches people to be more careful with the maintenance of the park and the cleanliness in our environment since this pollutes our atmosphere and the air we breathe. We have an obligation to focus on a healthier environment, contribute to the cleanliness of the parks, as well as our beaches and streets.
A park is always a very beautiful place to reflect and animals like iguanas, squirrels and other incepts that we must take care of also live. That day I went home very happy since I had changed the minds of many people and contributed to improve the cleanliness of the park. My visit to that park was amazing because I changed my total point of view of our environment. This was a great learning experience for my own knowledge and how I can connect to our environment and especially how I can help contribute to our ecosystem. That day I went home very proud of me and my park day had become to help and preserve the atmosphere and open the minds of other people to have a healthier environment in the park, since all the waste that I collected while I collected the garbage from the park also ends up harming the health of ourselves.
