AN INSPIRING STORY INDEED

Cody Jackson is a man who is moved by a conviction, filled with appreciation and set with the determination to show gratitude for others, others who have given greatly of themselves for their fellow countrymen like Cody, a man at the age of 8.

Standing in stark contrast to young Cody, I recall a recent man-in-the-street interview.  The interviewer holding a microphone  stopped a youth who appeared to be 18 or 20 years of age and asked the Jack Kennedy question, “What would you like to do for your country”? The young man was taken aback by the very question.  He replied, “Why should I do anything for my country? My country has never done anything for me”.

We do have these dolts, these slackers among us but we also have many like Cody.  God bless the Cody Jacksons.  It is in the youth with this spirit that lies the hope for the continued greatness that is America.
