Over a month ago I blogged about a PBS special that will be airing tonight, at 8pm called "Coming Home: Military Families Cope with Change."
As April is the month of the military child, I can't think of a better way to kick off the month. If you have a child who has a family member who was deployed and returned with combat-related injuries, or if they have friends who have parents that are, I encourage you to watch this special. It tells the stories of military families who are coping with such challenges in a very warm, loving and child-friendly way. The special features Queen Latifia, John Mayer and the biggest superstar of all . . . Elmo.
Here's to hoping that you'll tune in tonight to help make your military child's world full of understanding. A very special thanks to PBS and the Sesame Street Workshop - you are one in a million.
