No More

No one builds a barn without help from someone else. At least, I don't think it's possible. No, the more I consider this structure, I am convinced that it can't be done alone.

This barn comes from a different era. Buildings were community and family projects with few being compensated for their efforts. All worked together and shared the labor to complete the job. A friend once told me about a contrary neighbor that got his tractor stuck in the field. His dad, even though he didn't like the neighbor, went over to help. His son couldn't understand why his dad would work to get the tractor free for the contrary man. His dad replied that next time he might be the one who needed help.

The barn, that represented a different era, burned down last week. I trust that cooperation and community effort are not disappearing as well.
