Stories Come Alive!
A story can make you laugh, cry, think, dream, or just delight you with silly fun! Gayle Haas engages audiences when her ‘stories come alive’ as she depicts various historical and fictional characters. Her use of puppets, visuals, object lessons, and creative crafts entertain and instruct children and adults.
It was a Mother's Day I will long remember. While visiting my daughter and son-in-law in Texas, I went with my family to the Dallas Holocaust museum. The museum is 'dedicated to preserving the memory of the Holocaust, and to teaching the moral and ethical response to prejudice, hatred and indifference, for the benefit of all humanity.' Deeply moving pictoral displays and video-taped interviews with Holocaust survivors shared a grievious time in our world's history. A special exhibit of children's drawings found in concentration camps touched me as I thought of mothers' hearts aching for their children. I had the privilege of meeting Mike Jacobs, Holocaust survivor and creator of the museum. It is a must see if you are visiting the Dallas area.
