New But­ter­fly Gar­den is lovely

The Covington News - - OPINION - Dear Ed­i­tor: In my opin­ion, Liz Cobb Brenda Clark.

We have lived near Academy Springs Park for al­most nine years, so we pass it many times a day and visit there of­ten. The new But­ter­fly Gar­den is a lovely ad­di­tion to the park and makes even the drive or walk or bike ride along Le­gion Drive such a plea­sure. I walk in the But­ter­fly Gar­den as of­ten as I can and each time I do, I see some­thing new.

This is a time in our city’s “life” when space and breath are taken up with talk and writ­ing about the film­ing be­ing done or the great new things hap­pen­ing on the square, but for me, it is the Gar­den that is re­fresh­ing and good for the soul. Thanks to all the peo­ple I’ve seen out there all sum­mer in the heat, work­ing so hard to cre­ate the very best thing for our city in a while. em­bar­rass­ing this African Amer­i­can young lady.

I must tell you, you didn’t break her spirit. She con­tin­ued to sever oth­ers with a smile.

How would you feel if it were your daugh­ter?

Next time you de­cide to act like this in pub­lic, don’t wear your shirts with the em­blem on it.
