There are people in this town who are discriminating against a certain class of people in this town. I am talking about people who live in a (trailer house, Modular Home) – a HOME on wheels. Why do people think that it is all right to be NASTY, HURTFUL, RUDE, ETC. to others because of their personal opinion?

Discrimination is WRONG any time. The Bible tells us to love one another.

(John 13:34: A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.) Hate only begets hate.

I have lived in this town for 44 years and in a trailer house. I have learned that the town has been zoned and if for some reason I have to move my home or get another, I cannot replace it with another trailer. We pay the taxes on this home and property. And own the property. But because of certain ones who think we are not worthy to live in this town, we are an eyesore; we don’t fit into the historical part where they changed the law. They have decided that we are not worthy to live in this town. Well shame on you!!!

I love my small, quiet town, but this hurtful meanness.
