When is it good to mind someone else’s business?
November 13, 2017

There’s an art sculpture in town that wasn’t designed to be a playground. Nobody told the kids that, though. Apparently. Because they’re climbing all over it. It’s high enough in a couple of spots to be somewhat heart-attack inducing when you see them perched up there, which we have. Lots of times.

If a child would fall from that height onto the concrete below, something bad is likely to happen. I’m talking really bad.

And, yes. I’ve shared this with people a bit closer to the action. I’m not sure what the solution is, but I wasn’t about to keep my mouth shut this time. Having spoken up won’t save me from being heartbroken if something did happen to a youngster, but not having done so would mean feeling even worse.
