Recently California resident, Ryan Cox ran into a situation that is quickly becoming a rare scenario in today's society. Ryan became exceptionally intrigued when he heard a strange noise outside and decide that he had to take a picture of the boy responsible which has since gone viral.


This story seems to have caught the attention of quite a few hard working Americans that still believe in hard work ethic and integrity that this country was founded on.

Ryan was minding his own business when he heard an odd sound outside. When he looked out to see what the commotion was he noticed a 14-year-old boy standing in his lawn but it was only after he spoke the boy that he found the true reason behind the series of events that was unfolding before him.

The boy was in search of a little extra cash and instead of waiting around for handouts he decided to do something about it. He asked Ryan if he could mow Ryan's lawn for only $5.

When the California homeowner inquired as to why the kid might need the extra money he got an exceptionally honest answer.


“I’d like to take my girlfriend to lunch tomorrow and I don’t have enough money,” the young man explained.

Ryan was so impressed with the young man's work ethic and initiative to go out and earn his own money that he not only paid him for his lawn but helped him by going around to other houses to help the hard working teen earn all the business he could.

In the end this driven teen ended up sweeping sidewalks, mowing lawns, and anything in between in order to get the money to buy his girlfriend a nice dinner.

Better yet was that when the boy had finished working he had more than enough money for the meal and was able to get her flowers as well.

Ryan decided to post the picture on Facebook with an all too honest and inspiring caption.

“I’m so happy this still exists. Hope is still alive for the future generation and our sons and daughters.”

Ryan and this young go-getter have got the right idea. If our country was made up of more people like them who know that the right way to live is to work and earn a living then our nation wouldn't be facing the threat of Bernie Sanders as a potential president or plagued with the welfare leeches that seem to just take, take, take.

Be sure to share this on Facebook and show that there is still hope for our country with young people like this who know just how far good work ethic and drive can get somebody!
