The Magic in the Jacket
Maybe FFA and 4-H aren’t for magicians. You won’t find the jackets hanging in a magic shop. When you see a student in a jacket, you will learn to believe in them. They do some amazing things while wearing a corduroy jacket.
It’s blue and gold, or green and white. It boosts your confidence and teaches you lifelong lessons, all while your wrapped in a corduroy jacket.
The corduroy jacket is your magic cape. It helps you pull off amazing things.
Magic makes you believe in things. The jacket teaches you to believe in yourself.
People watch you to see what you will accomplish, instead of doves flying from nowhere, you went on stage and spoke the creed with so much passion that people wanted to watch you speak.
It isn’t a magic carpet, but it can take you anywhere you want to go. It is your own passport that’s possibilities are endless.
You don’t get three wishes while wearing the jacket, instead you work for what you want.
It doesn’t teach you how to pull rabbits out of your hat, but it does teach you how to raise rabbits.
The jacket might not be magical, but it does teach you how to be magical.
A fairy Godmother probably won’t go bippty boppty boop and turn you into a princess and turn a pumpkin into a carriage, but an agricultural educator can help you find your calling and become successful in whatever you chose to do. They can also teach you how to grow your won pumpkins.
Santa delivers presents all over the world through magic. In a corduroy jacket, you will donate food, help your community, and have toy drives to help people around you. No magic is required.
You don’t need magic to be great, you already have the magic in you to accomplish anything you set your mind to.
