I went to see Bruce O'Shields about every other week while Bruce was sick. I started going to the O'Shields Reunion at Mt' Carmel Baptist Church. Bruce and myself walked over the graves at Mt' Carmel Baptist Church Cemetery about a year before he died. I believe that we were kin i think that we were in the same line. But any way lets get back to Sula Bea Chastain O'Shields she loved people and she loved God. She was born in Pickens County S.C. She was a daughter of the late Oscar and Bertha Masters Chastain. Mrs O'Shields lived most of her married life in Dacusville Community she was a homemaker. She was the oldest living member of Mt' Carmel Baptist Church.

Bo-Bo was so sad that he thought' No one likes me. I wish that i was out of the Circus. I'am thinking about running away. The other clowns tried to talk to Bo-Bo but he would not listen to any of the clowns. They tried to tell him that running away was not the answer. But Bo-Bo still ran away. Most of the time when we won't listen we get into trouble and this is what happened to B-Bo. No i don't with the law but he got into trouble in other ways. Lets look at some of the ways that Bo-Bo got into trouble. His first trouble starts in a large city. There he is in a city where he doesn't know anyone. This is trouble for Bo-Bo right from the beginning. This also makes Bo- Bo very sad. Bo-Bo sees lots of strange looking people. Bo-Bo thinks boy' I'm in trouble now. I wonder what i can do now. All these strange people scare me. Bo-Bo tries to hide from the people. Maybe i can i can run and get away from these people. But this didn't work. Nothing was working out the way that Bo-Bo thought that it should. What was wrong with these people/ There wasn't anything wrong with them' it was Bo-Bo. Self is our biggest problem. We need to get self out of the way. Don't fell sorry for yourself. Bo-Bo was so tired that he didn't know what to do. Then he saw a bench. Bo-Bo sat down on the bench. He had a tear coming down from his eye. A little boy came and sat down beside him. The little boy saw the tear in Bo-Bo's eye what is your name/ My name is Bo-Bo he answered. The little boy told Bo-Bo his name was BILLY. Billy said to Bo-Bo' why do you have a tear in your eye/ Bo-Bo said because nobody likes me. Billy said well i like you. Billy told Bo-Bo how he loved to go to the circus. Billy said that he loved everything about the circus but loved the clowns most of all. Billy told Bo-Bo about the time that he was in the hospital. How he hsd to have his leg taken off and how sad he felt. Billy felt that no one cared about him. He said that he would cry all the time and that he would not listen not even his mother and daddy. He did say that he never would forget the day that the clowns from the circus came to the hospital and how happy that they made him that day. They made him understand that he really was loved and tthat he needed to stop felling sorry for himself. Bo-Bo looked at Billy with tears in his eyes but not for feeling sorry for himself but these were tears of joy. For the first time in long time Bo-Bo was really happy. Yes a little boy had showed him that he was loved. Bo-Bo told Billy that he had acted so silly. He said i'am going back to the circus where i belong where i know i'am needed. So Bo-Bo headed back to the circus. You talk about being happy. Bo-Bo the clown was very happy as he was going back to the circus. Speacking to everyone that he saw. What a change that has come over Bo-Bo. No longer sad as before but happy. As he goes near the gate to the circus all the circus people see Bo-Bo coming. They all rush to the gate. The circus people started singing come on home Bo-Bo come on home. Bo-Bo was truly back at home where he belonged. The staff at the circus loved Bo-Bo. I hope that you enjoyed reading this short story about Bo-Bo the clown. Written By Charles O'Shields.
