Last week we were able to take the kids to see the Moving Wall (the Vietnam War Memorial) that made a stop in Provo. I am so grateful we had this opportunity to teach the kids about the sacrifice others have made for our country.
Adam and Tessa were blown away by how many names were on the wall. 48,000, to be exact. I was proud of them for taking time to look at each panel and read through the names on each one.
When we were leaving, we had a woman pull up next to us in her car and call Eric and I over to her. She thanked us for bringing our kids to see the wall and teach them about what it was. She said she had been sitting with some Veterans, who were watching Adam and Tessa. She said they were emotional watching the kids and they expressed their gratitude that young kids were honoring our military. Sometimes we get things right.
