There is a truism that there is no stronger heart than that of a volunteer. 11yo kid, Frank Giaccio, wrote a letter to his president to offer his services to cut the White House lawn for free. It was accepted. Before the job CNN interviewed the boy and the conversation was pretty innocuous as you’d expect until the presenter gave the kid advice on child labour laws and perhaps asking him to fleece the president for money. It is hard not to burst into laughter that CNN couldn’t resist having a dig.
Encouragingly the comments sections on social media were overwhelmingly in favour of the event. Even comments on left leaning mainstream media sites were telling ‘triggered liberals’ to look at the event for what it was rather than try to find fault in everything Trump does.
Hopefully Frank embodies the spirit of effort, hard work and diligence of which many could well learn a valuable lesson from. Among all the overwhelmingly negative news feeds it would be nice to think one day people can unite behind good deeds for what they are and leave partisan loyalties on the shelf.
