PLEASE DON'T SCARE THE KIDS
“Good morning world! In the days ahead here is a nice request....PLEASE DON’T SCARE THE KIDS And making that request of you, while turning my thoughts away from the election that is making us all SICK. Thinking less about politics while thinking about OTHER SCARY THINGS. Let me say this again.... PLEASE DON'T SCARE THE KIDS ! And making that Pleading statement, while thinking about the next coming HOLLOW DAY. Knowing Hollow means... Being empty and having no meaning. Next knowing that Hallow means...being full of love and peace! While still staying with my same scary, tricky HOLLOW-een theme. We all know it is the night before HALLOWeen! That means, it is the night before the Trick or Treat show begins again. And that means, it’s actually the day right before we feel like it is Okay to Accept candy from the strangers who we meet. Likewise it’s Alright to talk to the Evil looking people we greet. Additionally it is OKAY to play dead in odd ways that evening. AND it’s also ALRIGHT TO SCREAM! But Wait.....IS THAT REALLY A GOOD WAY TO PLAY? Because NOT Every-body feels that same way! That's why, WITH NO BODY WANTING TO BE SCARED TO DEATH! AND WITH NO BODY WANTING TO BE SENT INTO A CARDIAC ARREST! AND WITH NO BODY WANTING TO BE TAKEN OFF INTO AN EARLY ETERNAL REST! With EVERY BODY WANTING TO HAVE A NICE TIME IN A CLEAN SAFE WAY! Today I wanted to remind you that tomorrow night, as old and young alike are all trying to have fun each in their own way..... NOT everybody thinks taking treats from strangers. Or talking to Evil looking people! While SCREAMING! Or playing dead is neat or Okay!... Therefore as we open up our doors. We must understand there Needs to be a Safe Place for those WHO WANT TO PLAY THE RIGHT WAY! That's why, to show the kids of EVERY AGE the softer side of life! There are things we need to do and other things we must not say too if we want this to be a safe Holiday night.. Bottom line, there are some special things that we need to do that will make sure everything is alright on HALLOW-een Eve! So following the Rule of "do unto others as you want them to do unto you" In review, we must be kind to the kids who are sweetly saying Trick or Treat or BOO! Thats why, looking only for tasty treats, praying to avoid any mean icky tricks that might be highlighted by the witches flying by in the moonlight. We each need to be Kind to ALL of the KIDS OF ALL AGES tomorrow night. Because tomorrow night there will be many PLAYFUL TINY Vampires, Giants, Ghosts, also some Ghouls knocking on our door, seen out and about on our streets. THAT MEANS, THERE WILL BE THOSE WHO DONT HAVE A CLUE WHAT BEING DEAD, SCREAMING, OR EVIL REALLY MEANS! Therefore, to me in that Playtime alien invasion we all need to be cautious, courteous, and caring to the little girlie zombies and headless tiny men out there who we meet and greet. Yes indeed, as the safe homes represented, and the trusted adults known, are being weirdly transformed and invaded by witches, vampires, and terrifying ghosts also ghouls..... who they don't know...and do Not want to meet! Everybody must realize that a lot more is going on behind-the-scenes on Halloween, while the children are out, and about looking for candy to trade, also eat. That's why. We all need to be aware much more will always be happening on this scary make-believe day! As the darling masked children also known as neat SWEET TREAT seeking Rockets are playing, and PRAYING TO GET HOME SAFE! Therefore, as the kids are knocking on our door, while innocently walking up to us, or sweetly straying into our webbed nests of scary things. We all need to know that much more will always be going on for sure during HOLLOW-or HALLOWeen! So, in that tricky statement as the kids are asking us for candy, We need to know the difference between a Tricky Hollow-een. And a SWEET TREAT Happy HALLOW-een! So to put the Hallow back into Hallow-een we need to ask ourselves…. Do we even really know what issues are hiding behind the children's masks? Do we really know how fast their little hearts are beating in their chests? And Without asking, while looking at the weird shadows they cast... Do we know if the child behind the mask is actually happy to be out and about? Do we really know what's going on inside of their heads…. as they walk the streets of the worm filled dead? Do we know if they are painfully shy? Do we know if any of the young ones hiding behind their costumes going on by..... are silently crying ? And not knowing the answers to those TRICKY questions without knowing why they are shy… or if they are crying…. We need to nicely ask How are they doing! Then asking that “Hi how are you” question as the haunted night try's to pass by....thinking of the children as they grab and dash. THE ADULTS NEED TO KEEP WEARING THEIR PROTECTIVE MASKS! But on the other hand taking off the out shadow of Evil that no BODY wants to cast on Hollow eeeeek We NEED TO PUT THE PAST SWEET TREAT BACK INTO HALLOWEEN. So, in doing all of that we should NOT SCARE THE CHILDREN silly. We should also Not embarrass them on that evening. And if they do not say anything when we hand them their treats. We should not lose our temper or scold them as they are leaving. We should also not make fun of them, or mock them if they do not respond appropriately by saying "Thank you." right away. Additionally we should not get mad if the kids do not laugh or play, while peeking over their see and say mask brims.... looking into our scary unfamiliar faces. And, we should also not demand them to do any tricks for us, or scream, or harass them as the sugary tempting candy is passed! So, making HALLOW een SWEET, PEACEFUL, AND CLEAN again in every way, In that Heavenly task silently seeking their safety..... We should GIVE THE KIDS THE REAL SWEET TREAT THAT LASTS EVERYDAY. That means, as they walk up and trot away….we should Silently PRAY!!! For them to stay safe throughout their life, as they grab their candy and dash away! Yes indeed by FOLLOWING THE GOLDEN RULE….to do to others..... what you would want them to do to you….. There are many things we should NOT do on Halloween eve. And the number one THING is.... WE SHOULD NOT SCARE THE KIDS! Because on that Scary night filled with Fright, we need to be reminded that our innocent Angelic children hiding behind their smiles ARE ALREADY FEARFUL WHILE TRICK OR TREATING on that SCARY NIGHT! After all…… haven't we always told our kids.... Always STAY AWAY from the Evil looking things that they see! And do Not accept candy from the strangers who they meet. Also do Not talk to the odd SCARY people who they are greeting. And DO NOT SCREAM! But now all of a sudden ONE THIS ONE WEIRD SCARY DAY AND EVENING that's okay..... Just because it is HOLLOW-ween? Yes to them that contradiction of instruction is very scary and confusing! So bottom line one more time... LETS PUT THE SWEET TREAT BACK INTO HALLOWeen.! That means, please be SWEET to those your meet! And PLEASE PRAY for the ones who you greet, as they walk away. Bottom line, Please WHAT EVER YOU DO ….Do not Scare the Kids.... OR THE ADULTS on Halloween... or any day!” Joslin Fitzgerald. ...The Mary Author…….
