1994 ~ Peter Jennings and the Little Guy in Sarajevo

Watch and remember.

It was February 1994 when Eki, a 12 year old boy from Sarajevo, was interviewed by Peter Jennings.
Peter Jennings, “What do your mother and father tell you about what the future is going to be?”
Eki,” They don’t talk about it.”
Peter, “How come?”
Eki, “They don’t know what to say.”

I was in tears afterwards and major dad said “Someone has to see this and get that kid out of there.” Someone did, bless their hearts. George and Helen Priebe of Irvine, Calif. brought his whole family over and they settled in Michigan.
Today the Iraq War veteran, Petty Officer Eki Foco, became a citizen of the United States of America.
He says America is a great place to be.

Well, Petty Officer Foco, it’s great to have you.

    Way cool! People like we need more of. Maybe we can do an exchange program for Algore, Ted Kennedy, and Jack Murtha.
