    So upset that someone would purposely disrupt a sanctioned gathering on our town common which is open to all. Have lived here almost sixty years and this is not what I have seen or felt ever before. Kudos to the neighbor who came out and tried to intervene. Try BEING KIND. Much easier than carrying around anger.
