On Veterans Day, our nation honors the men and women who have served in the United States military. Without their dedication, our country would not have the liberties and freedoms that we have today.
While I am not in the military, it’s been a privilege to work as a civilian for the Department of Navy and SPAWAR. I get to work alongside many veterans who have served our country. Thank you all for your service!
My Week in Review
I read to about 30 kindergartners and first graders at the John L. Dart Library last week. The students were from Carolina Voyager Charter School and New Israel Child Development Center.
I read to them The Little Engine That Could. I also shared my experiences of living with a disability. Using the same theme of determination that’s talked about in the book, I told these young learners that they can accomplish their goals if they stay focused.
The kids really enjoyed looking at my wheelchair, and they had really great questions. I talked to them about how I play tennis and that I love photography.
Speaking of photography, I submitted three photos to the photography competition at the Coastal Carolina Fair. One of my photos, Spirit of the Carolina, received an Honorable Mention. My other photos were a red tulip and a sunset at Brittlebank Park. This was my first year submitting photos to this competition.
