Why Is National Park Vandalism a Big Deal?

While many people in the general public seem to understand that vandalizing national parks is a bad thing, there are some that don't seem to understand the outrage over the recent graffiti vandalism being found on a certain instagram users page...

Besides all those reasons...that argument is stupid. There is ALWAYS something "bigger" we could be worried about so if that's the only reason you don't care, you better never complain about anything...
