A Hero's Story

The Tom Lee Memorial, Tom Lee Park, MemphisThe story of Tom Lee is a great story, but I think it's extra special for children. It has bravery and heroism, the Mississippi River, steamboats, and simplicity of means -- Lee's fishing skiff, the "Zev". I particularly like the "Zev" because it's a reminder that the instruments of greatness are within our grasps -- our backyards, our kitchens, our schools, our books, our minds.
