“I GOT AN AWARD” The Story of Agility from Mommy, I Am A PACER
***Getting close to the final game of the season, Coach Roger asked us to join him to the soccer field one day before the match. He ordered Pizza to the field, and he placed blankets on the grass where we sat and had dinner. Then he said:
“I am sure you are wondering why we are dining together on our field. Usually, people dine together as a family and as friends at home. Tomorrow, as you play, I want you to remember that this is your home, you should be proud of what you have accomplished regardless of the results. Play for you, for your friends and family, have fun but defend your home.
(handing the award to Abigail, the main character, he said) I am proud of you and here is your award!”***
#MOI the author, I wrote this book after years of experience as a Middle School Director, and being the Coordinator of Peace Education. My goal was to establish a safe zone for children, to have them grow with values, and learn from their mistakes.
I used to tell them, you are allowed for one mistake per day with zero consequences, as long as you do not repeat the same mistake…
We used to talk, and analyse their behaviour, and the repercussion of their actions. I wanted to create ambassadors of peace for them to go out to the world and make it a better place.
Did I succeed? I was able to reach many, I saw their pain, and felt their anger…
Why would kids at young age, have so much anger, pain, and hatred, that they can hurt others… what is happening in the world?
How can they sleep at night?
Will this pain, they are causing others, shadow them as adults?
Are there bullies in the adult world, will they become one, or would they heal?
I tried, I kept on trying, and then I wrote this book of five short stories, with the intentions to keep the mission of change alive, and to have this book reach every child, and parent.
The child will co-illustrate with the author and express his/her feelings, while understanding the values and characteristics of change and of being a PACER.
I hope you enjoy it as adult, as a parent, and with your child!
