A teacher recently collected the homework assignments that she had given to students just the day prior. When grading the assignments later that night, she never could have guessed what she was about to stumble across.
When asked how many people were in a family that has 14 legs a student answered that it was 7. After describing how he arrived at his conclusion, he went on to give a heart-felt explanation saying his math may not exactly be right.
Squeezing his answer in the few short lines provided, he wrote that unfortunately not all people have both their legs. He then pointed his teacher in the direction of www.woundedwarriorproject.org.
Someone’s teaching this kid right.
The Wounded Warrior Project is an organization created to help disabled veterans after returning from war. Helping as many vets as they can, the group strives to not only help veterans transfer back into civilian life, but also lend support wherever needed with regards to their injuries.
According to the IJ Review, it assists veterans with, “moral support, rehabilitation and job assistance.”
The world sure could use a few more kids like this, who truly understand the sacrifice that our men and women in uniform make every day. Along with that, having a few more parents to teach their children that respect would be nice as well.
What did you guys think of this? Give this kid a shout out in the comments below.
