It's really easy to get down on kids these days. It seems like all you hear about in the news are the bad ones, the "gang bangers", disrespectful kids, juvenile delinquents. Call them what you want. When I see kids that I know are a problem, I often wonder how they got that way. Do they treat their parents badly, do they care about their siblings or their grandparents? What happened to make them so angry? I used to work at a high school and I saw students with a terrible home life who turned out great. Others had everything they could ever want and they were dropouts by the time they were juniors. I know there is no rhyme or reason sometimes for their behavior.
Then you read something like this, and you have hope for the future again.
Bravo, Kaleb Eulls!!! Your family must be so proud of you. I don't know many adults, let alone a teenager, who would have done what you did.
After reading the article, I know that Kaleb doesn't consider himself a hero, but he is. I'm sure also, that he doesn't feel that he deserves any type of recognition or medal, but he does. President Obama needs to hear about this fine young man!!!
