Little Children Love and Need Story-TellingChildren love stories, especially about their own relatives. Have you ever noticed that upon learning that "grandpa" did or said something, your ears perk up? So where do we acquire the wonderful stories of the past? Anyone who has traced the family bearings to any extent has parcels of tales! There are stories everywhere that we visit, even in cemeteries. The old newspapers contain tidbits of information about local people. Here is a thought. I have an ancestor who fought in the wars with France under King Edward I of England. He was only about 30 years of age when he died, having married quite young and had six children. His bravery and valor are noted in the fact that he was a member of the Royal Garter. However, history tells another story of the 13th and 14th centuries, one of wars and plagues which wiped out a third of Europe. Did my ancestor die in battle, or from the plague? Interestingly, although many soldiers died of the plague, the battles continued. The stories are there for us. We are the heirs of history.
