9/11 have them read the actual 9/11 commission report…it is filled with tons of details, and they mapped together the string of events, and it will make you cry or at the least sick in your soul, as they have all the 9-11 calls and describe it.

Learning the stories behind the events is more powerful than just reading dry facts from a textbook. The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “A person’s voice has always held more power over us than words alone.”

 

She’s already nearly finished with the Eleanor Roosevelt book and is so excited about these topics. That makes a mentor mama soooo happy!
