Last year our daughter Kassidy attended Sunset Middle School in Brentwood, TN. A young man named Jared also attended Sunset. We often saw him at the basketball games in his wheel chair. The coaches would wheel Jared across the court and place him close to the bench. You could tell that he loved sports and being with his friends. I was impressed with how the coaches and the other students included him. For you see, Jared has severe cerebral palsy.

I remember thinking, "this kid is an inspiration!" 

Then, a few days ago, I caught a post on facebook by Kassidy's former basketball coach at Sunset, Mario Moore. He posted a video of Jared's latest sports accomplishment. Wow. If this video doesn't touch your heart I'm not sure you have one.

Duck Commander

Along with millions of other Americans I have become a big fan of the reality tv show Duck Dynasty. Today I came across some video footage of CEO Willie Roberton giving a speech at Harding Universtiy in which he discusses being an adoptive dad and his faith in Christ. Just more reasons for me to love and respect this family and their television show!
