I try to keep my blog lightweight and relaxed. There are times, however, when I feel that I must make a statement. If you are here for the garden and cats and food and travel adventures and SecondLife, I apologize. Today I feel the need to make it clear where I stand.
I live in a small NJ town. It’s a very liberal community, maybe more liberal at times than I’d prefer. I was born here, raised here, still live here. That is very uncommon these days. But here I am. Today I am very proud to be counted among the people of this town, and I honor my fellow residents and our police department, who walked right along with the people.
The video below shows the start of the people pouring onto the high school property after the procession through town. Please notice that nearly every single person is wearing a mask because we are, after all, still in a pandemic. Yet we all came out, because sometimes you have to do what is right, even if right is not necessarily safe.
