2008 Everyday Hero Award....and the winner is.....

When JT and I talk about a hero, we think about the people serving in Iraq and Afanganstan(actually anyone in the military) parents of special needs children, parents and families of children who are chronically ill and/or terminal ill, the chidlren at Stone's Buddies (Hi Amelia,Alex,and Ian) and one of the toughest little guys out there right now - Hunter Winship and his Airplane Cancer Goal. Imagine our shock,suprise, and elation when we were notified that JT is being honored with the Everyday Hero Award - 2008. JT is still overwhlemed and in shock. He keeps saying that he is not a hero, just an everyday kid with a love of trains! JT will be presented the award on June 6th in Los Angeles, California at a black-tie evening affaif! (yes, he has to wear a tux:)) JT has been asked to give a 10-15 minute(oops, seconds)speech (he does not know this yet, though)Hopefully, this award will help to inspire more kids to dream and reach for the stars, as well as, parents and community members to step up to the plate. With all that said, it is you, those who have supported this project that are the true hereos! Without you, the project would have never grown and moved full steam ahead! Thank you to each and everyone of you for your support, your encouragement, and your faith! Thank you for allowing a little boy to share his passion and compassion with others and to give kids a chance to ride the rails! God Bless! All Aboard!!
