On American Soil
D Ed Hoggatt
When a terrorist bombs a nearby building in Oklahoma City, Julia's dad yanks her from school.
Rescuers have not found her mother and baby brother, and Julia imagines the worst.
In the event that follow, Julia's emotions swim between joy and despair, and she must finally make a choice - be a victim or be a survivor. Not only is Julia a survivor, but she ends up putting the event into perspective for children across the nation.
Crumbling Spirit is a short account that roughly follows D. Ed. Hoggatt's own experiences during the Oklahoma City Bombing on April 19, 1995.
From the Author:
When I reflect on my experience as a second-grade teacher, just four miles away from a bomb that took 168 human lives, I still get chills. Every April 19, when I present my firsthand experience with fourth graders at my current school, I relive the event in high definition. It is vivid in my memory and still quite relevant in today's world.
