Patriotism in your Pocket with Chris Costa The American Snippets Podcast

    • Personal Journals

Chris Costa wasn’t supposed to achieve much. If you asked his teachers they’d tell you their young student was destined for mediocrity. After all, he had a learning disability the system deemed so pronounced, he was not pushed to do anything other kids were expected to do. His parents were not much more than kids themselves. At 18 and 21 years old, they had no reason to doubt the expert opinions they believed they were getting.

Time ticked by and Chris did as he was told, but something inside of him began to rise. A voice, a gut instinct, an awareness - whatever it was, it was telling him to do something about his future before it was decided for him.
