What can we learn about the people throughout history who have donned a Flat Cap and how can that help us today? Resilience! Like the resilience of young Felix Poe. (Shown in the family photo on the bottom left) Born to a poor Kentucky farming family in 1925, He and the Poe family endured the great depression and a migration to Ohio for work in the onion fields of Alger. Later, Felix would see U.S. Naval service in the Pacific Theater of WWII and then go on lead a full life raising a family of his own as a sharecropper in the farming fields of Ohio.
