From an early age, most kids are taught to stand with their right hand over their heart whenever the national anthem is played, but that was always impossible for one Michigan little boy.
9-year-old LoganWilson was born three and a half months premature and weighed just one pound and 10 ounces at birth. He spent six months in the NICU, but as he gained weight and strength, doctors realized the baby boy had spastic quad cerebral palsy, which has made it impossible for him to walk without help from medical equipment.
Doctors told his mom, Rebecca, that he had no chance of a good quality of life, however, he loves everyone he meets and understands everything, including the national anthem. Logan knows he’s supposed to stand while the anthem plays, but because of his condition, he could only manage to take off his hat to show respect.

And while watching a recording of a game the other day, Logan heard the national anthem playing from the stadium and stunned his mom by attempting to stand up for the first time. “He always takes off his hat,” she said. “But until yesterday I never really saw him try to stand. He just knew that is what we do to show respect to our country and everyone who fights so hard for us.  He is truly just an amazing kid just doing what he loves.”
“Even my 9-year-old with CP (who can’t walk) knows you’re supposed to stand up during the national anthem…He loves it,” the proud mother wrote in a post to Facebook along with the video, which has since gone viral.
