Polio and the red wagon
My cousin Brenda had polio when she was 3 years old . Dad had bought us 8 kids a radioflyer red wagon we were alwas fighting to see just who got to ride and who had to pull. When Brenda come home from the hospital we didnt argue anymore who would ride we argued who would get the honor of pulling her around the block.It was a pleasure to see her happy face .all the neighbors would come out and talk to us, give us cookies and kool-aid and one lady made her a cushion to put behind her back and one to lay her braces on her legs upon.In my mind i see how that red wagon and Brenda made a neighborhood more friendly with one another.we gave Brenda our much loved radioflyer wagon.
