An Inspirational Tale

Sometimes a young man with a dream CAN make a difference.

The steel mill closed, and the town of Hard Luck, Ohio all but closed with it. The folks had never known a life without the mill, and with the employer of 90% of the population gone things didn't take long to deteriorate.

Most notably, though, the spirit of the town degraded. People can't go on without a purpose. It's no good for a man to wake up without a plan, without a calling to carry him through his day. Folks lost hope.

But then one day a boy no older than 16 came up with a plan: he would play video games. He hooked up his old Optoma 3D Home Theater/Gaming Projector and began playing games on a huge wall of his house. And slowly the folks in town came to gather and cheer him on. It didn't help the town at all, and eventually over 98% of the homes were foreclosed on and owned by the bank, but video games were a pretty good distraction for those folks while everything sucked so bad.
