Greatness of Our Country
By Thomas Sulier
“One person can make a difference and everyone should try.” President John F. Kennedy
Randy Weaver, who is a long time resident of our Town, is a devoted husband and father, a retired United States Navy Veteran, and a silent worker in beautifying our community in his own quiet way.
For years, he has adopted a point at the intersection of Pumpkin Ground and Cutspring Road, which lies nearby, to his home. He has toiled without fanfare and cultivates a gorgeous garden at this singular point in our town, but also adds festive decorations during the various holidays.
The way I see it, it is not the money in a man’s pocket, or the clothes on his back that is important, but what is in his heart.
Randy exemplifies what good citizenship entails, doing what’s right and good for his neighbors, his community, without heralding his good works – as he has done in the past for his county. He has also contributed in his own way to the ongoing development of the Stratford Veteran’s Museum.
His efforts, seemingly small and unheralded, should serve as a model for all of us to follow as practice good citizenship and serve as a model for the generations to come.
