PLYMOUTH ROCK (CONT’D)
They placed me next to the Liberty Pole,
and this became the meeting spot
for the town’s important meetings and protests.
I was glad I was able to be
a symbol of freedom and loved when people talked
about my history of helping the Pilgrims.
You must have loved your new spot in town
and being able to see all the townspeople
It was wonderful at first.
In addition to being a part of
the townspeople’s meetings, visitors would travel
many miles to get a glimpse of me.
some of these visitors were greedy.
How were they greedy?
After learning my story,
they wanted to take a piece home with them.
Many visitors would bring chisels
to pick off little pieces of me!
Didn’t you tell them to stop!
I did, but they didn’t listen.
They just kept chiseling away
and I was becoming smaller every day.
