When she was eight years old, Mary Lynn Roddy was shocked to hear that the family was moving from the idyllic village of Nahma, MI. “Well, I won’t go, that’s all!” she cried. Their large picketed yard, with two apple trees and a strawberry patch, could never be replaced. And the four little playmates she so cherished? “Can grown-ups really do this to us kids?” Ahh, yes, she found. In the backseat of their old Chrysler, she cried and cried as they left town. Her mother folded some papers in half and told her to write down exactly how she felt. Once she’d done that, she felt ever so much better.

she told everyone. And like her favorite childhood character, The Little Red Hen, one day she did.
