An impact to all, but also the ~One~ Man that would bring together my community after a while. My town is known for its cliques and exclusion. I am not involved in one, I am actually friends with everyone in my class. Just about at least. We all know each other. Its nice, but when it gets cliquey, It's not fun.
Mr. Lobdell ~Always~ saw the cliques. He shook his head at them. He would and ~Was~ the ~One~ man to bring our community together.
By the way, when I said cliques, *lets a air giggle* I did NOT just mean the high school, or school in general. I meant all of us. Adults on through elementary. My parents are in one. I babysit a girl that's in one. In my town it's NOT uncommon.
But this ONE man, Mr. Blake Aaron Lobdell brought us all together. We cried and grieved together. We are healing together.
The funeral took up a FULL church. The actual place with the pus, the fellowship hall which is just as big, the balcony, and the place that they serve goodies after Sunday church.
HE brought a WHOLE community together, and I think we all realized so much. Yes, there is still cliques of course, but right now, they aren't anything they were. Everyone is supporting each other like we should. We are trying to heal each other.
All from this one man.
We are a community together. Once again.
