My husband just directed my attention to this inspiring story about an inspiring young man. When the only grocery store in his struggling community closed, seventeen-year-old Nick Graham used the $10,000.00 plus that he had earned working on his uncle's turkey farm (and had been saving for college) to put it back in business--under his ownership. Watch the video. You won't regret it.
"I know what I'm gonna do tomorrow, and the next day, and the next year, and the year after that. I'm shakin' the dust of this crummy little town off my feet and I'm gonna see the world. Italy, Greece, the Parthenon, the Colosseum. Then, I'm comin' back here to go to college and see what they know. And then I'm gonna build things. I'm gonna build airfields, I'm gonna build skyscrapers a hundred stories high, I'm gonna build bridges a mile long..." --Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey, It's a Wonderful Life.
