A to Z Challenge – O is for Ogden

“Progress might have been alright once, but it has gone on too long.”

Ogden Nash

I discovered this quote was a part of a poem Odgen wrote in 1962. I can’t image that he knew how appropriate it would be sixty years later in regards to what progress has done to the health of our planet. It sure seems it has gone on far too long with the levels of pollution from industries and the products they created. Just plastics alone weigh the earth down with so much pollution that will not revert to any natural form years from now, only pile up more. That is why I chose this quote.

Past letters…

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N

Forward and Back

Two steps forward

Three steps back

It happens all the time

But keep trying

Stay positive

And one day

It will be three steps forward

And two steps back

As long as you’re positive

You can move forward

And make progress

In this game called life
