My Town

Jane Austin of Walnut Ridge shared the following which seems just as valid today as it was when it was written in 1930.

My town is the place where

My house is found, business is located, and where my vote is cast.

It is where my children are educated and where my life is.

My town has a right to my civic loyalty, it supports me and I should support it.

My town wants my citizenship, not my partisanship.

My friendliness, not my dissentions.

My sympathy, not my criticism.

My intelligence, not my indifference.

My town supplies me with Protection, Trade, Friends, Education, Schools, Churches, and the right to Free moral citizenship.

It has some things better than others.

The best things I should see to make better.

The worst things I should help to suppress.

Take it all-in-all,

It is my town and it is entitled to the best there is in me.

Anonymous. Circa 1930
