Hard to Say Goodbye
How many other children have grown up with nearly 19 acres to run around in, watching planes take off and land, all while raising some portion of their own food? I'd wager that the number is small, perhaps only six. It makes me sad to watch it empty out, to see all that we have put into it be taken down.
Rich's replacement at the airport is someone who has no experience in aviation or with airports. We would have understood a little more had they replaced him with someone of equal ability, but from their staff, or if they had found someone who was much more qualified. Instead, they are ruining this place already, and it hasn't even been in their charge yet. It is sad for Rich to watch all that he and the management company that had responsibility here worked for be destroyed by petty politicians who are more worried about their control than what is good for the facility.
Please continue to pray for us. Especially for Rich, who is watching nearly 10 years of his effort and work be undone by people who are ignorant, foolish and just don't care.
