Jason Koger’s Amazing Story: In His Own Words

The photo you are looking at it probably just looks like a field to you.  But to Jason Koger it is much, much more.  It's a field that harvests amazing memories from childhood and tragic memories from adulthood.  Here at WBKR, we absolutely love Jason Koger.  He is walking proof that tragedy doesn't have to make you a victim.  No.  He's proof that, if you put your mind and, more importantly, your soul into it, you can pick yourself up from anything, dust yourself off and live better today than you did the day before.  On Sunday morning, Jason posted the photo above on Facebook and shared some amazing words of reflection and wisdom.  I suggest that you take a few minutes and read this.  Jason's words are as powerful as his story and that story will move and inspire you.
