Busch Gardens (through Marcus’s eyes)

Showing Love

April 5, 2017

Dear Marcus,

I wanted to commend you on the letter you so boldly gave to your friend when he made a bad choice.  I know going against your friend’s actions to stand for what is right can be difficult.  In the end it’ll save you from a lot of unnecessary trouble, so keep up the good work.  Remember what we tell you:  you’re either on the dark side or light side.  Be the jedi.  Stay away from the dark.

Love,

Mom and Dad

❤❤❤❤❤❤

Then the complaining started, and for partly valid reasons.  YUCK!  Seaweed everywhere, merky water, and half eaten fish? Where were we? This was not the pristine beautiful water we saw from on top of the bridge!

This experience reminded me of how people see us.
