“That’s the fire truck in case someone gets hurt.”
The museum was almost all aircraft, but leave it to Jack to find a fire truck! This one was tucked back in a corner. He found it and needed a picture. Forget the SR71 spy plane; the fastest plane ever made, at over 2,000 miles per hour… We need to see the fire truck! I did get a picture of the SR71. That for me, was the highlight of the museum. But in the eyes of Down Syndrome, a red fire truck beats a black plane. A siren beats roaring jet engines. And something made to help people beats spying and making war to hurt people. I just love Jack and how he uses his condition of Down syndrome to teach us all things that we should already know. If you’re a Jack fan, leave him a comment, below. Thank you.
