    Let me know when it’s ok to look.

    Once upon a time I had a house.

    Tragically, it burned to the ground. It has been eight years since I dared go back to the site.

    Some scavengers told me that they might be able to salvage some of the things that were left in the house: copper piping, jewelry, things like that. I had just written all of these things off as gone. I had just assumed this house would always be a scorched spot of earth, always to be looked upon as an embarrassment.

    People would say, “How did this happen?” How did you LET your house burn to the ground?” “What’s wrong with YOU?”
     
    So I moved. And I didn’t move close, I moved as far as a I could so I wouldn’t ever have to drive by that house again. Sure, I would see it in my dreams, my nightmares. I would yell at the fire and tell it that it ruined everything. I told it to go away and never come back. I’d always wake up sweating, swearing I was covered in soot.

    So now these people, these scavengers…. Is there any reason to let them in? Once something precious has been tainted, does it still retain it’s value?

    My father is an attorney so from a young age I had heard of things like “wrongful death”. If someone dies wrongfully, does any amount of money ever fix it? If I was hit by a bus tomorrow, would my loved ones rejoice at the 5x annual base salary I’ve provided for them in my loss? Or would they just wither away and long to be with me in my death, only to become a living zombie.

    I think I will let these people in. Not for the potential recovery of valued items, but to find the answer to that question. At what point does a certain sum of money make things ok–if ever.

July 17, 1955:  Disneyland Theme Park Opens in California
On this day in 1955, Disneyland Park opened its gates to 28,000 people, half of whom entered using counterfeit tickets. The day was marked by numerous disasters including: heavy traffic, extremely high temperatures, a shortage of food, and a gas leak. For over a decade, Walt Disney and his executives referred to this day as “Black Sunday,” declaring that the official opening day was the following day, July 18. 
The $17 million theme park in Anaheim, California was the only theme park to be designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney.
Learn about the early beginnings of the cartoonist who gave the world Mickey Mouse and Disneyland.
