The War: A Way Kids Can Help

October 25, 2007 at 10:05 am 2 comments

Found this article on the Queens Courier online. It’s a program that collects school supplies from American kids (donations) and sends them as care packages to kids who live in war zones. In addition to reaching out to these children, whose lives our policies have ravaged, the program encourages teachers to use it as a springboard for teaching and discussing the Iraq war in classrooms. All that’s required here is one teacher in your child’s school who is willing to spearhead such a project.

From the article:
“Commenting on the importance of My ABC’s [program name], President of Manhattanviille College Richard Berman said, ‘Education is the focal point of rebuilding a peaceful sustainable community and is the key to developing individual freedom and economic stability.’”

If only it were that simple.

    Haven’t. I think it’s better for older kids, who actually know something about the war and how screwed up things are. My 7 year old just things that Bush is a liar.
