    Saddened on way to Alto Vista Chapel tonight-img_0432.jpgAquaman (John) sent me a photo of the vandalized cross.
    He asked me to post it.


    Wondering if this could have been caused by a car...swerving...maybe accidental?

    Looks like it. But why are the religious symbols missing?

    Andrea, if you look it is also damaged at top right. This is away from traffic. Also the cross is about15ft from road. And as CK1 says, the religious icons have been taken

    So sad...why? No reasons in this world for such hate.
    Was greeted in Walmart's a little bit ago; by three young teenagers..
    Stopped my husband, son and me. Each open a box of hot krispy kreme donuts and said "we are from Faith Church" we would like
    to brighten your day (it's raining here) with a nice warm donut....how nice. They were talking how with all the hate and all they
    wanted to do some random act of kindness....
    Wish everyone can do that.
    Really brighten my day and to say their were many other kids in the store walking around doing this.
    So sure they have proud parents

    This is why I think we should not allow anyone else to go to Aruba......the more people that hear about it and go the more chance for some idiot to do bad things and ruin a beautiful island..........So, like I said before....do not tell anyone else how cool "our" island is. Lets keep it to ourselves and maybe we can help preserve something else from vandalism..........

    Paul and I went to Alto Vista Chape this morning.
    The pastor from St Anne's in Noord was there giving some friends from Italy (not the pope) a tour.
    I asked him about the cross and he said it was repaired/replaced a couple of weeks ago and it was not vandalized....It was hit by a car!

    So no religious icons were taken? It was not a theft just a car accident?

    That would be correct.
    The priest was very clear in his description. Telling me it was a car accident and never mentioned that things may or may not have been taken. .
