Today’s Birthday: Rudy Giuliani

It's May 28, and many great people celebrate birthdays today, including former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, who turns 70 years old.  He was universally praised for his leadership during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and just recently a museum opened as part of the 9-11 Memorial in New York.  Periodically this blog has suggested going to historic places as a way to supplement your American School education.  We realize that not all of you may be able to visit New York, and even if you go there, you may not feel comfortable going to Ground Zero.  That is ok.  We do recommend, however, that you look for and visit interesting places wherever you might be.  Perhaps you'll go to a national park, a zoo or a museum.  You could also see a play or visit an art gallery. You probably don't have to go very far from your home to find such a place, or perhaps you'll discover one on a summer vacation.  Either way, let the interesting places around you enhance your already robust American School education.  You'll be glad you did!
