Writing 'Remembering With The Heart, Stories By America's Finest', became one history lesson after another over four years. During my career as a public school teacher and as the founder and director of Kind Kids Inc,, a 501c3 non-profit organization that instills volunteerism in community activities and promotes reading across the generations, it has been both an honor and a privilege to listen and to learn from the veteran's that reside at The Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH), Washington, D.C. The main characters in this book are veterans that reside at AFRH, Washington campus. Their years of service to our country has played an integral part of both their personal and professional lives. The prolific storytelling in the book exemplifies the learning, the compassion, and the heartfelt experiences that we all become a part of as we journey through our very own lives.
