My friend is missing

Dear Editor:

I arrived in Carbondale about two and a half months ago. I was invited by my friend Jim who lives in River Valley Ranch. I was so glad to be here in the midst of the snowcapped peaks and the golden aspen trees.

Jim was so proud of my being here that he loved to show me off to his friends and neighbors and those who would pass by. When Jim awoke the other morning and discovered that I was gone and did not know where to look for me. I was no longer there is because I was taken from Jim’s home without permission. You see, I am the flag that was flying on Jim’s front porch right next to the American flag. I am a flag from Israel.

James DeBerge
