Trick or Treat !!!

We know this to be a phrase, shouted primarily by kids, given candy, that they may not steal from the grocer nearby.

From the 9th century to now, the evolution from devil worship to mass balls with extravagant costumes, has become an economic boom for retailers, and a headache for parents.

So this Irish/British pagan ritual adopted by Catholicism, became a time of guilt, or soul searching, primarily by the rich, who committed the most sins, then gave leftovers to the poor, that God may spare their rich dead relatives from being stricken from the book of life. “See God, what I have done for the poor!”

The answer came back, …”yeah right!”

So anything can happen on Halloween,… “trick of treat weekend”. A soul may be saved, a marriage annulled, a first born, yelling “I’m finally here, hello world!”

For me it was the arrival of RIKKI VAUGHN, his wife and son.

I was at the rally, Donations for Bahamians, in Baltimore Md., when Rikki and his family walked up, and with that wide smile, uttered the sentence, “I’m running for Mayor of Baltimore City”. ..TRICK or TREAT !

Here’s his story:
