The Pledge

Found by Steven Sherrill in Charlotte, North Carolina

I walked out of my (shitty) apartment one spring morning in 1991 and found this message scotch taped to every post and pole along three blocks of McClintock Road. I use the find regularly in my fiction writing classes, and it still moves me after all these years. I wish the scanner could capture the smudges, tears, and tape residue. I hope Mary was grateful.
