I want to raise global kids, so I must show how in times of crisis we help each other. Whether that's our neighbors, our friends, our community, fellow countrymen, or it's those around the world in places we've never been that need our help, I want them to do whatever they can to lend a hand. They may be young now and not ready to join in on recovery or mission trips, but that doesn't mean that we're not talking about our goal to help people as a family and thinking of things we can do to help those affected by Harvey or Irma. With the release of American Girl's newest BeForever doll, Nanea Mitchell, it gave us plenty of talking points to discuss ways that we can make a difference in times of crisis. Nanea Mitchell is a Hawaiian girl growing up on the island of Oahu in 1941. Her story explores what life was like for islanders in the weeks leading up to and the aftermath of the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, which marked the U.S.’s entry into WWII. Not only does her story bring this period in history to life for girls today, Nanea’s story illuminates how the courage, patriotism, and aloha spirit of the Hawaiian people inspired a nation at war and shows how one girl can make a meaningful difference in the face of big change.
