Gloria has been in Washington D.C. with a classmate (I’ll call him Tim.) His father sent an email and photos to the class each day about Gloria’s adventures in Washington.
Hey Aqua Room,
Tim wanted to send a note to give you an update on Gloria’s trip! Today Gloria got to see the Lincoln Memorial. President Lincoln believed in equality for all, which is a lesson we thought Gloria would like as well.
Tim also wanted to let everyone know he misses them!
Oh my goodness! How wonderful is this on so many levels:
- Gloria actually traveled to National places in Washington.
- A child wanted Gloria to see Washington.
- A parent “got it”, understood the big picture, and sent emails and photos to the class.
Understanding that Gloria is a person, accepting Gloria for who she is, and including her as a member of the family, is a life lesson for the heart, and for the ages.
Stay tuned for Part 2.
