He had a few books that he had to read, essays and projects that he had to do and turn in the first day of class.
This one really blew my mind and tugged at my heart. I am quite convinced that teenagers are moody because they are required to read such SAD books.
One of the books he read was Sunrise Over Fallujah.
I wont summarize the book,
[Postcards he wrote and illustrated
one character, Robin,
to another, Uncle Richie]
should give you the best of its work:
FYI: There are 10 postcards in the series...I will post one each day for 10 days...ENJOY!
Dear Uncle Richie,
I remember the postcards I got from you and my dad and how you said that you were nervous and jumpy, my sentiments exactly. We’re not in Iraq yet but it’s like back when I got measles back in New Jersey. I wouldn’t change sitting around back home for the adventures I’m going to have. Camp Doha in Kuwait is great. We actually eat on plates instead of trays, like in Jersey. I miss you all, tell mom and dad I say hello.
