Our school has an Army veteran who happens to also be a veteran fireman. He has completely revitalized our school safety procedures through his love and care for the children, staff, administration, and parents. However, in 2011 a mistake was made in this veterans life that caused him to be labeled a felon. This father, son, mentor, coach, role model pawned three fishing poles that was left behind in the house he moved into and then was hit with a felony. His father, the first African American firefighter in Kissimmee, Florida, passed away right before this situation happened. He was going through a tough time knowing that his beloved father and mentor passed away. We all make mistakes in our lives, but should our mistakes define who we are? Abraham Lincoln failed three times to have a seat in the administration of the United States. The end result of his failure was his tenacity to continue not to stop and at the end became President of the United States. Martin Luther King Jr said, "If you can't fly, then run. If you can't run, then walk. If you can't walk, then crawl, but by all means, keep moving." This person should be able to keep moving in all areas of his life especially when it impacts youth of the community to stay off the streets and love a sport.
