From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a Raccoon,"
or "that's a lot of money for just a Raccoon."

They don't understand the distance travelled, the time spent,
or the costs involved for "just a Raccoon."

Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a Raccoon."

Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a Raccoon,"
but I did not once feel slighted.

Some of my saddest moments have been brought aobut by
"just a Raccoon," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a Raccoon" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

If you, too, think it's "just a Raccoon," then you probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."

"Just a Raccoon" brings into my life the very essence of friendship,trust, and pure unbridled joy.
"Just a Raccoon" brings out the compassion and patience
that make me a better person.
Because of "just a Raccoon" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.

So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a Raccoon"
but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future,
the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

"Just a Raccoon" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.

I hope that someday they can understand that its' not "just a Raccoon" but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a man" or "just a woman."

So the next time you hear the phrase "just a Raccoon,"
just smile,because they "just don't understand."
