“This isn’t a mess, Daddy,” she declared. “This is history. And in the immortal words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., ‘We are made by history.’(from Imogene’s Last Stand by Candace Fleming)

Can I just say how excited I am at the prospect of going through piles of old family letters this year? Some might say, “What a mess!” or “What a pain!” But to me, it is our history. What we are made of. I’m so excited!

Also, Imogene’s Last Stand is a must read for all history and children’s book enthusiasts. Truly a gem.
