The Make-A-Wish foundation has made some pretty incredible things happen. But this one out of Australia is pretty special… especially if you’ve ever just wanted to blow shit up.
The group’s Sergeant Peter Murphy helped guide Declan through the ins-and-outs of working with explosives. Sergeant Murphy said Declan had a potential future in breaching and demolitions.
“He’s got an aptitude,” he said. “I’m not sure what he actually expected, but once he started functioning a couple … he was getting into it. He was pretty excited about it but I think the family got a bit of a kick out of it too.”
Declan’s trip also included a meeting at Parliament House with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove.
I think Declan’s wish resonates with a lot of people, because sometimes you really just wanna blow stuff up.
