The grass is not greener, it's a different color and there's always dog poop in the yard for us to pick up. But it's up to us. So pick your color grass. That goes down to the individual responsibility. We have to own our impact. We don't have to work for that company that makes us feel like crap. We don't. We have a lot of choices. Most individuals have a lot of choices.
