Dakota Meyer story is proof enough that future in safe hands

'Thanks, Dakota, for bringing to life one of greatest scriptures ever penned' -BILLY JOE FUDGE

By Billy Joe Fudge

As for me, the amazing Dakota Meyer story has quieted any misgivings I might have had about "the" younger generation.

Actually, I am pumped. I really can't remember if I've ever been any more excited about the future.

Dakota's story, for most, should move this recession out of the mountain and into the molehill category.

Thanks Dakota for bringing to life in front of the world one of the greatest scriptures ever penned, "Greater love has no one than this; that he lay down his life for his friends." -BILLY JOE FUDGE
