Our town square was bulldozed down and modernized, what, about 2 years ago now? Gone are the pavillion, the topiaries, the tree lined pathways, the benches for people to rest in the shade, the lovers benches where teenagers used to sit and hold hands and speak of who know what to each other, the food vendors, the families gathered in small groups, adults talking while the children ran and played.
Instead we now have this warm, inviting piece of cement parking lot. Don't you just want to spend lots of time here sitting in the hot sun, visiting with friends and passing the time away?
The main church on the island forms the border on one of the sides. It, too, looks so inviting now. Beckoning you in to worship and find solace from life's problems. If not for the Virgin, one might think it is an office building. It used to be charming.
I will never forgive the past administration for ruining our town square like this.
