Freak Show

My uncle (fathers’ side) use to be committed to a mental institution and on occasions would get out; he committed himself so I guess he could leave when he wanted to, weird!  Anyways, when I was in 4th grade he come to our house and my mom freaked out.  All my friends wanted to see him as if he was a freak show or something.  He didn't care and would give everyone silver dollars just because.  I don’t know who was more of a freak that day, us or him…  He’s now dead, but he had a good heart. RIP
