To the Rescue(:
Hello everybody!!(: My name is Carolyn Santos. I am a student at California State University of Los Angeles. Im taking English 101 and my professor is Jennifer Hicks. On April 22,2012 also known as Earth Day I had the honor to clean one of our local beaches named Dockweiler Beach. Although it was really cold and windy. This would have to be one of the greatest experiences I have had and it was for a great cause as well. I can honestly say that out of all the times that I've been to the beach I have never seen to much trash on the beach. My group and I started out with very little trash but as we walked along we started noticing things I would have never expected people to leave in the beach such as shirts, shorts, socks, shoes, sandals, and grills in order to make a barbeque. Those weren't the only things that we saw that day we also saw diapers, paper cups and plates, plastic containers, and finally toys kids could play with. It was really a privlegde to work with other students and help clean the enviorment we live in in order to make it a better place to live in because although we didnt get everything on the beach it is one step closer to improving the planet we live in better for everyone.
