Anyone else tired of all of the angry news coverage about the inauguration?

Good, me too. Let’s take a break and talk about something important, what the kid who played the younger version of Forrest Gump is doing today.

(Hint: It’s going to melt your heart.)


Forrest Gump is one of the most iconic movies in history. Perhaps one of the most popular scenes in the movie is watching a younger version of Gump start running, breaking off his leg braces.

While the movie went on to win over the hearts and minds of millions of Americans (as well as 6 Academy Awards), child actor Michael Connor Humphrey decided that he didn’t feel like pursuing a Hollywood career.

Instead, he followed in the footsteps of his character and grew up to join the military[2].




I’m proud of this young man for not getting sucked into the life of glamour that could have easily come with playing a part in such a big movie. Instead, he chose to lead a life of selflessness and heroism. Thank you for your service.
