Thanks: What’s Yours?

As 2019 winds down, some thanks are in order. Just a few prominent mentions.

On the last day before New Year’s Eve, I’d like to thank the cops for all they do — in some of the toughest parts of the country — along with fireman, EMTs and first responders.

I also want to thank those in the military for serving with honor, and their families who sacrifice to make it all possible.

I’d like to call out the lamestream media and fake news. You know who you are and what you do. You are the disgusting stain and obstruction to what makes a free society function. There are no excuses for what you do, but a sincere apology once in a while wouldn’t hurt.

I know I am leaving out many others and volunteers who donate their time. I can’t leave out my disgust for many on the left who have not accepted reality since the last presidential election. Time to move on. Here’s a message from 2016 that still stands.

To malcontents at odds with reality, a reminder is obviously necessary: Donald Trump is still President and he is not going anywhere. His support has not been cancelled either.

Good News: 1 making a big difference

There is a good news story here about making a difference in a big way from a surprising young person. Prudential just awarded this youth for his volunteer good work.

Not very often do you hear of someone who managed this kind of accomplishment in the community at just 16. He’s helping veterans which seems to be a passion.

If this doesn’t humble you….

Prudential Spirit of Community Awards (Their site)

Bradley Ferguson, 16, of Northfield, N.J., a sophomore at Mainland Regional High School, started a service-learning club that over the past three years has supported veterans and people in need by refurbishing an American Legion post, collecting food for a community food bank, making lunches for homeless people, and growing fresh produce at several community gardens. When Bradley was in seventh grade, he saw many people in his town lose their jobs and, ultimately, their homes. In an area reeling from the recession, the demand for food was so high that the local food banks were running low on supplies, he said. One day, Bradley watched in horror as a desperate veteran set himself on fire outside the local VA clinic. “This is an image that will never be deleted from my mind,” he said. “His death serves as an inspiration to me to create change.”

With $123,000 in grants obtained by Bradley, his “Post Crashers” club has conducted numerous activities to aid veterans and feed the hungry. Club members and other volunteers helped refurbish the local American Legion post by painting it, replacing tiles, updating the kitchen, and decorating the facility. They also cleared the backyard to build a “victory garden” and a community picnic area. Post Crashers also has made nearly 2,000 sack lunches for the homeless and for veterans living in transitional housing, collected large amounts of nonperishable food items for veterans and a food bank, and worked on gardens that have yielded more than 1,500 pounds of fresh produce for the hungry. ***

 

So someone in High School made this kind of effort in helping veterans and the local Post. No doubt there is a future leader. Already there is local talk about a possible political career. Must have some super-proud parents. Nice that they are honoring him.
