A very special tribute to our veterans who reside at The Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH), Washington Campus, Washington, D.C. was held on Thursday, December 5, 2019 in the Community Center, on the lower level of the Scott Building. History came alive at this heartfelt evening event, as we introduced our new book, "Remembering With The Heart, Stories by America's Finest."
Writing "Remembering With The Heart, Stories by America's Finest," became one history lesson after the other for the past four years, and for that I am grateful. For many years, during my career as a public school teacher and as the Founder and Director of Kind Kids Inc. a non-profit 501(c)3 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 veterans. The main characters present in "Remembering With The Heart, Stories by America's Finest, are the 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 their 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.
In a near future, signed copies of "Remembering With The Heart, Stories by America's Finest" can be ordered directly from the web store at my website www.thekindkids.org. We believe that you will truly love our book!
