Pursuit of Happiness

When I was with my son Saturday, at his JROTC Raiders scrimmage, it was cold.... it was windy and I am talking 50 mph wind gusts. It was brutal! We adults couldn't believe we were huddled in our cars with the heat on but instead on metal bleachers cheering our sons/daughters on as they competed. The events were a physical fitness test (2-2-2 they call it = pushups for 2 minutes, sit ups for 2 minutes and a 2 mile run), then its off for first aid training and rope bridge. This started at 730am.

When we left, and begun to thaw out, I asked my son, what makes him thrive to do this kind of stuff. Since lets face it - some of those kids wined about the weather, while others did what they needed to do to bear the weather! He tells me, it give him great satisfaction to be a part of something that will prepare him for his future. WOW! That coming from the quiet son is alot! So I thought about it - hes in the pursuit of happiness!
