“Dear Vandal,

The yellow rose bush that grew here gave joy to many who passed by, some who have no garden of their own. It was probably older than you and its flower smelled heavenly. Why did you tear it from the ground: Are you proud of your actions?

Try making people happy, not sad, your life will improve.

All the Best, Local Resident”
