I wasn't sure I would participate this week. I can honestly say I have never ever written a "Dear John" letter to anyone. Ever! I can't imagine doing such a heartless thing to someone let alone how horrible it must feel to receive one.
I do know of a couple of incidents during the Vietnam war where a couple of girls from my small home town did that very thing.
Oh it was not pretty once the word got out. It spread like wildfire. And shortly after the word got out, the girls left town. Hummm I wonder why?
now on to my contribution......
Sally and Mark grew up in a small town.
Both were straight “A” students.
Mark was the star football player; Sally was the captain of the cheerleading squad.
They were the perfect homecoming queen and king, the perfect valedictorians, the perfect fiancés, until Sally wrote a Dear John letter to Mark while he was in Vietnam.
The whole town turned against her.
