A 12-year old Lockport girl has lymphoma, and Make-a-Wish intercedes to see what they can do to make this girl's life just a little better. She doesn't want a trip to Disney, she didn't want to meet an astronaut, she didn't want to meet Britney Spears. She wanted a pool. Not an elaborate pool, just a nice size above ground pool.
So through Make-a-Wish, Colley Pools of Hamburg donated a 24-foot pool, Home Depot donated a fence and volunteers from Fox Fence and Local 91 erected it. What else would they need? Simply enough, they needed water.
So Mayor Mike Tucker, after being approached by several people, makes the call to fill the pool. Wouldn't you know, people called to complain. Anonymously. Wouldn't you think that if you saw a firetruck at a house, filling a pool, that there would need to be some special circumstance? Apparently some in the neighborhood immediately jumped to the conclusion that the fire department was up to no good, and that's unfortunate.
This girl has been fighting lymphoma, wants a pool, and all the City of Lockport has to do is fill the pool to make this girl's wish come true, and people call and bitch.
If you are one of the unfortunate souls who did make a call, I just have one question for you: How the hell do you sleep at night?
That being said, I hope to God that you or a loved one never find yourself in the same position as this little girl and her family.
