Tim Olson letter: Bring display back, no questions asked:To the person or persons who stole two items of our Christmas display:
Congratulations on ruining a display that took hours to set up. Set up by a dad and his son. Congratulations on making that 4- year-old cry.
Every year we put up a nice display to celebrate Christmas and every year something is stolen or just vandalized. I thought this year after all the we have been though as a country maybe I would see a change in the way we treat each other. I must say I am very disappointed. Our display was up for only its third night before parts of it were stolen and we have many more nights to go. I will keep up my display because I believe many people like looking at the lights and the actions of a few should not ruin it for the majority.
One more thing to you who stole my property. Please return our items (no questions asked) to show my son that sometimes we do stupid things but we can correct what we did wrong.
