Montague the Beautiful or should it be Montague the intolerant? I cannot believe the fuss being created over the house recently purchased for the Boys and Girls Club. One would think we were talking about a Hells Angels motor cycle gang moving into the neighbourhood. The claim or dispute is that this is a residential neighbourhood, it is peaceful and quiet place and some locals wish it to remain so. Forgive me if I seem a wee bit dense, I thought it was in residential neighbourhoods where one would expect to find children. Isn’t it where families live and raise their children, have back yard swings, tree houses, pools and trampolines, isn’t where we hear laughter and sometimes crying, the sounds of children. Those who have vowed to sell up and move if the club goes ahead should do exactly that, move! Children are the future, they are what make us families, make us proud, make us soccer Moms & Dads. These people whom doth protest so, are surely relics from the past! do they believe children should be seen and not heard, children should be spanked, sent to bed without supper. These were all things I endured growing up in the 1940’s-50’s but I thought today we knew better and had stopped such cruel methods.
Shame on you Monatgue!!!Wake up Montague Council, these children are our future and they deserve to be treated with love and kindness, they need a place to be safe and enjoy their young lives.
God Bless and keep reading
