TAMAQUA, Pa. - A little boy in Pennsylvania decided to do something to protect a few helpless creatures on his way to school.
"We came up Schuylkill Avenue, there was something on the road and all the ducks were surrounding it," said 8-year-old Keenan Cook.
As he and his mother got closer, they noticed that someone had hit a duck in the road.
"It made me feel sad and then that day, my mom told me that if I wanted to, I could write a letter," he said.
"The letter was very well-written. It was sweet, it was touching, it was touching," said Kevin Steigerwalt, the Tamaqua Borough manager.
The council voted unanimously to approve the signs.
"I think he learned that he has a voice and there's a positive way to use that voice and that he should be active in the community," said Shanna Cook.
"Ducks can be safe and people can be safe," Keenan said.
