Passing Down Our Heritage - Poem by Jan Horner

My dear, sweet grandchild I look into your eyes
And wonder how I could educate you
To have a love for our American heritage?
We have visited numerous museums
So you could learn about our past
I read you stories about our nation's heroes
So you had a sense of belonging as
We enjoyed the holidays, parades and air shows
And when you say, tell me about them again?
I know my efforts have been successful.
