Most people have said they were sad to see this show come to an end. Others say the employees will find jobs. They will also need homes.
I have been so blessed to meet some of the clowns that are no longer with us. The stories they told made us laugh and long for just a bit of that life. What I love about the circus are the clowns (of course) and the elephants. I used to take my kids to watch the circus set up the big tent. We would sit on the grass and watch. I remember the elephants walking trunk to tail. I'm not crazy about the scary dare devil acts but show me a clown in the cannon or in a little car. i hope the smaller circuses will step up and fill the void. They are fun as well. But they need more than one clown. There still be camps and schools to train those May clowns. I'm so glad that I have been able to help in those areas. Getting to know some really special people is the reward.
I hope there will be little clowns that will grow up to be real clowns one day.
