Today in the neighboring town of Covington, they had a special day called "Officer Morgan Day". It was in honor of a five year old little boy named Morgan who has muscular dystrophy and is in a wheelchair. He idolizes those in law enforcement and wishes to be an officer himself one day. The Covington Police Department has made it happen! There were lots of surprises for the lad, including a surprise visit from Shaquille O'Neal, a very famous basketball star. (You will be able to know which one he is...he is seven feet tall!) See the sweet story here.
If you get a chance to look at the photos on that link, you might recognize Covington. There have been several TV shows and movies filmed there. Years ago, I was visiting New York City and when I turned on the TV in the hotel room, I was startled to see the courthouse in Covington! It was on the opening credits of "The Dukes Of Hazard". Now, they film the TV show "The Vampire Diaries" in the square of Covington.
I was glad to see this on TV. Making a little boy's dream come true might not be a big news item on the national or international news but it should be.
Thank you, Officer Morgan for your service to Covington and watching out for us!
