    In so many third world countries, parents and kids consider an education to be the best thing they could have. They have to pay fees to have their kids in school, the kids WANT to go to school because they know without education they are doomed to a life of poverty.
    And yet in this country so many kids disdain education and consider going to school to be a boring chore. We take it for granted.

    What a beautiful change. My husband went to the US Naval Academy during the Viet Nam war. When his school would play football at a civilian school the students weren't real nice. Suffice to say he had to change his uniform periodically. He spent 20 years in the Navy. Back then while On vacation he was asked why are you not working, our tax dollars are paying your salary. He finally retired and we moved to New Hampshire. We have veterans license plates. When we step out of the car someone always comes up and says thank you. He even rear ended a truck one day recently and the man got out of his truck looked at the damage then saw the license plate. As they were exchanging info he said, Thank you for your service." Wow what a change!

    Love the story. Glad to hear it's true as well. My son was in the Navy and sent on some missions. He is now transitioning to the Coast Guard.
