Molly and Milly came home from vacation to learn there have been several robberies in the area. Molly is trying to come up with a plan and Milly is a mess.

Milly's keeping watch

Mom, Dad and the kids went to bed early and Molly was out like a light. Milly on the other hand was laying in bed wide awake. She was afraid to go to sleep. These robberies were scaring her and she couldn't sleep. If she did go to sleep and woke up to a burglar what would she do? The vacation in Carolina beach was still weighing heavily on her mind and for all those reasons she would be up all night. It was amazing all the noises you could hear in the middle of the night when the house was quiet.

A strange noise

Milly was listening to the ice maker and she heard the air conditioner come on and she could hear Dad snoring. Those were all normal sounds but suddenly she heard something outside. Milly's heart starting beating faster as she jumped out of bed. She just knew the burglar was here. She ran to the back window and started to pull the curtain back but was afraid. What if she came face to face with him? What would she do? She slowly opened the corner of the curtain to look outside. She seriously couldn't believe who was in the back yard. It was that crazy raccoon that lived down the street. She was going to have to tell Molly about this in the morning.

Molly has an idea

Molly was up early and Milly told her about the raccoon. Molly knew that raccoon. He lived in the big old maple tree down the street. Molly had an idea. She was going to go and talk to the raccoon and ask if he'd seen anything unusual. He might know something that would be of use. Her next step was to set up a block watch. If she could get all her friends in the neighborhood to join the block watch they would have a better chance of keeping their neighborhood safe. She was going to plan a meeting to go over the details.

Robert agrees to the plan

Molly called Robert and asked if he'd be willing to be part of the block watch. Robert agreed to come to the meeting and said he would bring Sally the welsh corgi with him. Everybody agreed to meet at Molly's house. When Molly presented the plan to Dad he liked it. He even agreed to set up the perimeters of the block watch. Mom made snacks and set up the family room for the meeting. Dad made some phone calls and people from the neighborhood were coming over to sign up for the block watch.

The meeting

The meeting started early and everyone seemed to be willing to help make their neighborhood safe. Milly was going to take the night watch on their street. Molly would be on guard during the day. Robert would keep an eye out on his nightly walks and Sally was going to keep watch during the day. The adults that signed up were given assignments by Dad. Milly felt better now that they had a plan in place. Sally was still a little nervous but thought this was a move in the right direction. They couldn't just sit by and let their neighborhood be burglarized.

If we can organize other species, the baddies will have no place to hide! I am reminded of Edmund Burke's words - "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

Thanks Nancy for such an uplifting story telling of the possibilities for an ideal world. Just like Dad we can shake our legs when others take over, but I hope there are no spies among them too! siva

Siva, thanks for the awesome comment. I'm so pleased that you shared Edmund Burke's words. It goes right along with this story. I really think that if we sit back and do nothing bad things will occur. I think we should all be proactive in one way or the other.
