1.If you have (or have had) grandparents, or older adults in your life who fulfilled the role of grandparent, identify the various roles that these individuals have played or are currently playing in your life. My grandparents have tremendously impacted my life with constant warmth, love, affection, and motivation. They have served as caregivers when my parents were at work, so I began to build some sort of attachment toward my grandparents.

My parents worked until 12am, so I would basically only see them when it time to drop me off at school that morning and on the weekends.

I was pulled out of school the day of his funeral and griefed with the rest of my family.
Story time was always something to look forward to when going over to my grandparents house. Every time my younger brother and I visited my grandparents, we were in for a treat as my grandpa told us stories of his time during WW2, and even going back further to the Enlightenment Period, the crusades, explorations, etc. “I wonder what grandpa is going to tell us today.” Joshua, my younger brother said- anticipation embedded on his face. After a couple of minutes driving we reached our destination - a brightly yellow painted house, with a big front yard that houses so many family of flowers, and a flag pole with the flag of the United States proudly sailing in the air. Entering my grandparents house made my brother and I even more anxious,
My core program is Early Childhood Education. During the most recent live lecture (week 4), you stated we were allowed to present out final project on any current event. I am deeply dedicated to ECE, however, the recent accusations against the Wounded Warrior Project has influenced my decision to choose this subject, over my core program.

Two of my four grandparents, both of my grandpas, passed away before I was born. My mom’s mom passed a few weeks before Katrina and my dad’s mom passed away this past about a year ago during winter break.
