I spent so long at McDonalds that they started bring me coffee at my table. I was there for over two hours getting caught up on email and writing down all this crap.
While I was there making blog posts I noticed several fire trucks and police cars and a dump truck in the middle of the intersection. A few minutes later an employee came out to the middle of McDonalds and announced that it had been exactly a week since 4 year old Joshua was hit by that truck and asked the patrons for moment of silence.
I can't ever remember watching a fast food restaurant cease all motion for a full minute. It was touching and a nice reminder that small town America still cares.
