GOOD NEWS Mom Posts Touching Video of Son With Cerebral Palsy Trying to Stand For Anthem
A football-loving child suffering from cerebral palsy delighted his mother when she caught him on video trying to stand up for the national anthem while watching an NFL game on TV.
Rebecca Wilson, of Chesterfield, Mich., said her son Logan routinely takes his hat off for the Star-Spangled Banner, but never saw him try to stand up, she told Fox 13 News.
Logan needs medical equipment to move around the house, but is able to crawl on his own.
“Until yesterday, I never really saw him try to stand,” Wilson said, “He just knew that is what we do to show respect to our country and everyone who fights so hard for us.”
Logan spent six months in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit after being born three months early, and was diagnosed with spastic quad cerebal palsy, the network reported.
His mother says despite his medical setbacks, he understands a lot and loves everyone, including the Detroit Lions and Detroit Tigers.
After posting the video on Facebook, Wilson admitted her post was somewhat of a criticism of those NFL players who have refused to stand for the anthem, citing racial and other issues.
