LadAnother section of the new Brushy Creek Trail over Brushy Creek as part of Phase V.ies & Gentlemen, it is with deepest pride

And great pleasure that we welcome you today

And now we invite to  join in, hike on this new trail

As Wilco Parks now proudly presents

The newest!

Be our guest be our guest

Put this new trail to the test

Pull your hat on; tie your shoes, my dear

And we’ll provide the rest

Sun or shade, quite the view

Chasco built it, yes its new

RVI planned it with much talk

Don’t believe me, hit the boardwalk

Birds will sing, and they feed

After all, this stream is free

And the fishing here is never second best

Go on down there’s a bridge

Just one stroll and then you’ll

Be our guest, yes our guest

Be our guest

Water flows, under foot

Dapple shade, poison ivy,

Turtles, snakes and stream mighty

Biological cabaret

Until now you never cared

The bridge and rails, all prepared

It’s so roomy for the hikers,

Strollers, wheelchairs and the bikers

Moving fast, or slow behinders

Choose a pace, there’s no timers

And it’s all in perfect weather you can bet

Come on get off the grass

You have your own free pass

To be our guest if you’re stressed

It’s slow walking we suggest

Be our guest, be our guest, be our guest

Life has been no sweet dream

For those of us in quarantine

Our souls are drained without our normal routines

Ah, those good old days when we had choices

Suddenly those good old days are gone

My generation grew up watching June and Ward Cleaver raising their sons Wally and “the Beaver” (Theodore) on TV.  Ward was the wise and mentoring Dad walking his sons down the narrow and true paths of life.  June was the loving, comforting mom who stayed calm no matter what flew thru her door, and I will add, cooked dinner in pearls and wearing high heels. Well, Wally and Beaver were the typical kids getting in trouble and learning from their mistakes.  Life was generally good and that was the idyllic 50’s.

Today, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men report being physically abused in their home settings.  1 in 3 teenagers are in a violent dating relationship.  Parents, who will your kids be with tonight and doing what?

For those young ones growing up in turbulent homes:

What is life without trust?

What is life full of fear?

What is life that lacks affection and where a hug is only offered for protection?

What is love – what is it like to hear all these songs of love and not be able to phantom what those words even mean?

What is it like to rarely feel safe?

            That is the very life of a child in a home of physical abuse?

            How does the brain of a child develop normally with high levels of cortisol surging always?

            This family is the foundation for developing multigenerational lives of the abuser and the abused.
