This is very true. I was 11 years old and remember begging my mom and dad for pennies, nickels, and dimes (and sometimes donated part of my lunch money) to save the Battleship.
What a sense of pride we felt when all of us saw the ship floating down the Cape Fear to her home destination! We saved her....and we felt like we could accomplish anything after that. I still feel a sense of pride every time I ride by her.
