Today I ran across an old piece of paper that I had stuffed into my momento box. It’s a letter from four of my nieces to their mother, written in their youthful penmanship. What I found interesting enough about it to save it, was the rhetoric that went into the writing of it. My sister has eight children, all of which are home schooled. The letter is from the four oldest, who also happen to be girls. My sister was very good about teaching them American History, and it wasn’t hard, I suppose, because they loved (and still love) the stories of any kind of history. They are also very patriotic young ladies, so it’s no surprise that they borrowed from some of the language of important speeches in United States History. Take a look.
Also notice that they are “Alan’s” daughters. Not their mother’s daughters when it comes to this request.
I turned the paper over and found another equally funny thing. They apparently had folded it into eights and then noted something on the front that conflicted just a little with their signature in the actual note.
From somebody you don’t know! You gotta love it! Truly truly speechwriters in the making. They will be women with a cause someday!!
