How incredibly inspiring. Makes you want to go out and collect used musical instruments and cases and send them to the little town. Thanks for the uplifting story.

Look what kids can do when they don't have computers, ipods, gaming systems, and cell phones to take up all of their time.

Seems to me that it would take a lot of imagination to look at mounds of trash and be able to pick out things you could use to build something, especially something as intricate as a musical instrument. Doc, do you think kids today have imagination like we did in the old days? I don't know how old you are, but when we were kids we made up games, created playhouses in the woods and forts and raked all the neighbors leaves and made trails and castles and all kinds of things. My sister made a pretend hospital and actually made up a 3x5 card for each stuffed animal and doll and created pretend injuries. We made a pretend grocery store and marked prices on everything because one of the kids down the road had a little play cash register.

I don't see kids doing anything pretend any more, do you? They are put in front of a TV at a very early age and then shown computer games at age 3 and the rest is history. Kind of sad don't you think?
