If you've parked on the west side of Dillon's grocery store over the past few months and looked north, you may have noticed a simple message in large, white lettering attached to a fence facing the parking lot.
Be brave
The message's creator, Pratt resident Dan McAnarney, joked that he decided upon this particular message because 'I had some spare plywood and the letters fit.'
On a more serious note, he added, 'I decided that there were several areas in life where I needed to be braver.' He added, 'It's easy to get stuck in a comfortable rut.'
Dillon's shoppers may recall an earlier message that adorned McAnarney's fence: Be kind.
Be kind now provides a reminder for children where it hangs at a playground area in Lemon Park.
McAnarney is currently contemplating another simple message that is especially fitting for the busy holiday season: 'Be still.'
In any case, McAnarney's simple messages to Pratt Dillon's shoppers provide some substantive food for thought to take home with you, besides the groceries in your cart.
