Originally I was going to take a photo of the word “NO” as in “No Regrets” because I try not to live with regret… but I do have one.
I regret not getting more of my grandparents’ history while they were still alive – their stories, historic events through their eyes, even recipes that brought such comfort as a child.
I love that I came across this assignment from sometime in grade school. It was an interview with WWII soldiers and their wives on the Home Front presenting their unique perspectives of the War. Additionally, I had the powerful opportunity of having one set of Grandparents from America and one set of Grandparents experiencing very different challenges in Europe. The best part was getting full participation from all Grandparents on one project.
Looking back, I know that they didn’t enjoy talking about the War so it’s a precious gift to have this much insight into this part of their history.
