Boy With Cerebral Palsy Recites Entire Pledge of Allegiance to Military Dad
Kindergartener Jake Garza often communicates using only one word at a time, except when it came to the Pledge of Allegiance.
Born with cerebral palsy, Jake Garza sometimes has difficulty speaking, but his military dad was blown away when he led his kindergarten class in reciting the entire Pledge of Allegiance.
"I was full of — I was just so proud,” Jake’s dad, Eric Garza of St. Petersburg, Fla., told CBS News through tears. “The same emotion I'm displaying now is exactly how I felt."
Garza is in the U.S. Coast Guard, which made his young son’s huge feat all the more special.
Jake’s school aid Cheryl Cunningham said he’s full of smiles but when it comes to communicating. He often uses only single words, except for when he delivered the Pledge for his dad.
"I’m so proud of what he’s accomplished," Cunningham said. "[Jake's] dad being in the military and my son just went into boot camp, so it’s huge."
