This morning I drove to Oddfellows Cemetery on University Drive here in Starkville. I have many family members and dear friends that are buried there. When I turned into the cemetery, I was shocked and deeply hurt to see five college students walking dogs there. The dogs were digging up some of the graves and relieving themselves on tombstones and graves. I stopped these students and asked why they were walking dogs in the cemetery and allowing them to desecrate graves of people who had family members that loved them and don’t want their graves to be used as bathrooms for dogs. One boy replied, “The landlord suggested we bring them here because there is no yard where we live.”
Well, shame, shame, shame on whoever that landlord might be.
