We had a nice parade in town with participation from the Navy (there’s a base nearby).

And then there was the idiot who thought that the Parade didn’t matter, he could drive out onto the main parade route … and hit a child who was going for candy thrown from the floats. The child was taken by ambulance to the hospital. Our prayers are with the child and his or her family. These ambulances were not participating in the parade, sadly they had to be doing their jobs…
