In many ways, I believe each American serves our country by keeping our economy alive, teaching our children or serving others. 

Yet, no greater sacrifice than those who have given of themselves in the military.  Some have paid the ultimate price for our freedoms.  As a young boy, I remember hearing the stories of my grandfather’s in WWII.  That was part of my inspiration to create and direct the music video “Whiskey Lullaby”.  As I starred in that video, I thought of my grandfathers, in that era.

Then, 9/11.  What many of you don’t know, I felt the heart strings tug at me me to enlist.  Unfortunately, I was denied enlistment due to medical reasons and it hurt. 

Today, I can only offer what I can offer right now, to my country.  My gratitude and my utmost appreciation for all that have served or are currently serving.   A few weeks ago, my son, Luke had his interview to enter into West Point Academy. (We are still waiting on a decision.)  As we are faced with our son enrolling into one of the most prestigious academies in the world, I am humbled and inspired by his pursuit of his goal. 

Thank you to our veterans for giving us so much.  Thank you for being an example of what my son can strive to be.

BULLYING IS NOT COOL!

YESTERDAY, MY SON WAS BODY SLAMMED 3 TIMES BY A BULLY, THE SAME BULLY THAT HAS BEEN MAKING MY SON’S SCHOOL YEAR A NIGHTMARE, INCLUDING STEALING A NECKLACE I GAVE MY SON AS A SPECIAL GIFT FOR HIS FIRST YEAR OF LITTLE LEAGUE. LAST NIGHT, I CALLED THE COPS TO PUT A STOP TO THIS, AND WHEN THE COP CAME OVER, HE SAID THE SCHOOL POLICE OFFICER WOULD HANDLE THE CASE. WHEN I GOT A CALL TODAY FROM THE RVMS PSLO, HE TOLD ME THAT BECAUSE MY SON VOLUNTARILY WALKED INTO THE AREA THAT THE BULLY WAS, THAT IT WAS MY SON’S FAULT FOR GOING “INTO THE LIONS DEN” AND THERE WAS NOTHING HE WOULD DO ABOUT IT. WHEN I TOLD THE OFFICER THAT THIS BULLY HAD BEEN BULLYING MY SON ALL YEAR, HE SAID HE ONLY TAKES ONE ISSUE AT A TIME AND THE PAST WAS DONE, AND THE NECKLACE WAS THE BULLY’S BECAUSE THE BULLY WAS ABLE TO NAME A STORE WHERE THEY SELL THEM. THE KAUKAUNA AREA SCHOOLS IS PROTECTING BULLIES AND IGNORING THEIR VICTIMS! PLEASE SHARE AND SEND A MESSAGE TO EVERY SCHOOL DISTRICT THAT PROTECTING BULLIES AND DOING NOTHING ABOUT THEIR ACTIONS IS WRONG!! MY SON HAS BEEN BULLIED ALL SCHOOL YEAR BY THIS GROUP OF THUGS, AND NOT 1 TEACHER, ADMINISTRATOR, COUNCILLOR OR OFFICER WILL DO ANYTHING TO MAKE IT STOP, THEY ONLY OFFER EXCUSES AND BLAME THE VICTIMS!!! PLEASE HELP ME IN THE EFFORT TO STOP BULLYING!!
