Watch Now: Cody-Kilgore: Cowboy GRIT Inspires a Community

THE LOW DOWN: At first blush, it seems like your average small ranching town. Just like many you’d see while driving down Hwy 20 though the Nebraska Sandhills. But Cody is special. With a population of just over 150 residents, its school draws kids from all over North Central Nebraska. In fact, even though Cody is in one of the most sparsely populated areas of the state, its unified school district covers one of the largest geographic areas: 553 square miles, to be exact. That includes two time zones and three area codes.

 

So how does this small town sustain such a powerful school? Because its residents think big. This big thinking led to a unique project to address a major community need in a way that encourages real-life learning, leadership and entrepreneurial spirit in its students.

Goat Heads and Sand Burrs | Daddytude.com | Daddytude | Scoop.it

Sometimes some things we think are harmless, like a beautiful pasture, often turn out to be prickly and annoying. Too often, beautiful things can turn out to be dangerous and harmful. Like the deer that wander past the house, they look beautiful and harmless, but in reality they are the cause of serious injury and death to humans.

As a father, I’m always vigilant to danger and constantly on the lookout to protect my family. My biggest fear is humans – not stickers, burrs, or animals. The coyotes that prey in the pastures don’t scare me; I’ve taught my kids to not approach deer; and most of the other animals are rare and pose little risk. But it is the people who appear friendly, but in reality prey on children, they scare me.

............

I had a similar discussion with my 7yo the other day.

 

Interestingly, this parent's approach to religion is very similar to more and more people in the world. If we, who believe in God, don't understand these folks, we will never be able to have a meaningful conversation with them.

 

And do you ever wonder where the next generation is headed, spiritually?
