It was a great place for all kids to enjoy. Cleverly designed ramps made all areas accessible. Around the outside was a fence. Each of our kids had a board with their name engraved in it. It was a birthday present to each of them a few years ago. I kept meaning to take them up there to take pictures. I never did. And now it is too late.
Tonight, the South Euclid Playground of Possibilities caught fire. I know there are many very sad friends in the area. So many worked so hard to raise the money and build the structure. It just doesn't seem right.
It was an intense fire. Flames could be seen from miles around. I wonder what happened? I sure hate to think that someone purposely set this fire. I'm sure the investigators will find the cause.
Later this evening, I had to go see for myself. The smell was horrendous. The sight even worse. It's hard to see something that so many kids enjoyed end this way. I have a good friend who lives a block from the park. We sat in her family room reminiscing. All we have left now are the memories.
