I still love my town, but…

.

Remember Mr. H?

.

.

The charismatic donkey that was built as a parade float but had recently been traveling around our town?

The one a local artist spent two years designing and building?

Mr. H was well loved in our small rural community and people looked forward to seeing him cruising from place to place. Homeowners could request a Mr. H visit and he would happily park on your lawn for photo ops and climb aboards.

And then?

This:

An event that’s shocked our close knit little town.

The artist donated this cat sculpture to our local elementary school and he happily greets children every morning as they start their day.

I wish I’d known about the little memorial gathering. I would have attended and mourned his loss.

As well as the loss of civility and common decency we’re currently experiencing in this country.

Rest In Peace Mr. H.

I’m hoping everything you and the flag you stood for isn’t dead as well.

People can be so hateful.

 

I know tax time can be a stressful time of year, even now when the deadline has been rolled back.

And I know some people are still anxiously awaiting their stimulus checks.

But please, can we all just take a breath and have a little common decency?

The following is a recent FB post from the mother of a friend of mine. She’s a widow in her 70’s who works for H&R Block at tax time to supplement her fixed income.

The fact that she even has to say this saddens me.

 

 

 

So please, calm down.

We’re all in this together.

Even the tax accountants.
