We had no Mome Ec, BUT I did learn to sew with my Brownie group. My first project was a lovely pair of pink shorts with girls hula-hooping printed on them. Very practical. We also learned to make May Day baskets and would leave them on the door steps of the older neighbors on May 1st, full of little flowers and treats we made.

That news did me in too. I was so so so sad at sixteen (and most of my adolescence). I remember just silently sobbing myself to sleep so many nights, feeling that heaviness in my throat and in my chest. Poor sweet girl. I wish I knew how to protect my children from that pain, and I hope to God that I can if need be. And oh, these small communities...why do people feel that pushing some one away and keeping them out will solve the problem? In my own community of women (mostly moms) I see things that make me feel sad, shouldn't we be leaning on eachother, creating soft landings when bad things happen and celebrating when good things do?
