Children’s books: deeds

September 11, 2015

Whether you write children’s books, or something else you might want to show your characters doing good deeds. For example, in my children’s books, Charlene the Star and Hattie’s Heroes, and Charlene the Star and Bentley Bulldog, the animal characters raise money  for orphaned sheep and also hold a talent show to boost the spirits of their friends. I have always thought it’s important to help others and my books convey that.

Have you ever wondered about the children born on 9/11/2001? There is a terrible event connected to the day they arrived in this world. Hillary O’Neill is one of those children, who turns fourteen years-old today. During an interview she said when she was very small her parents were “afraid to put balloons outside to celebrate my birthday.” But now “Being born on that day made me realize  you really need to enjoy the little things and make good out of what you have because there is so much awful that could happen at anytime.” Hillary says she feels connected to the 2,977 people who were killed on 9/11.

“I feel like I have the spirit of all the souls who were lost that day,” she says, “and me and the other kids born that day carry on their spirit and soul as a reminder.”

  1. I have never thought of the children born on 911 and how they must feel every time they have a birthday. Interesting post Deanie.

  2. Thanks, Tony. My sister and brother in-law have their anniversary on that day. They were married before the attack, but still it’s a connection with that event.
