A couple of weeks ago Cheese (Travis Marbly) lost everything in a fire.
We put up a "go fund me" site and the out pouring of love and support not to mention money have come flying in. I was just overwhelmed with pure joy.
Travis Marbley and I could not look at the funding tally and talk about the other offers of support without crying.
Sometimes we only see the things that divide us. Politics, race, income levels, culture, religion, sexuality, all cause us to feel separate or apart from our community. But when something like this happens we see how unimportant all these things are and how important our neighbors are just as people.
Thank you Clarksdale.
Thank you all of you people from far and wide who are an important part of our community. All of you are our neighbors.
See you soon,
