Military Mom Talk Radio hosted by Sandra Beck welcomes Pat Brisson, author of Sometimes We Were Brave, February 14th

Sometimes We Were Brave is a picture book that portrays the special challenges military children face written by Pat Brisson. It’s about Jerome, whose mother is in the U.S. Navy and is shipping out for an extended period. Jerome’s mother kisses him good-bye and tells him to be brave, but he’s not sure he can do that.  He misses her a lot and worries about her out on her ship so far from home.  But when a wise teacher explains that being brave doesn’t mean not being afraid, but rather, doing what you’re supposed to do even though you’re afraid, he begins to realize that he has been brave all along.

Author Pat Brisson visits Military Mom Talk Radio

Pat is not from a military family, but as a children’s author, she visited many schools to talk about reading and writing.  When she visited DoDD schools in Panama and Guantanamo, she became interested in the military family subculture. As a parent, she wondered how she would deal with having to leave my children for long periods, and as a writer she wondered what it was like for the kids left behind.   Sometimes We Were Brave was written as a tribute to military families and a salute to the sacrifices made by the children of those serving in the armed forces.

Pat Brisson is the author of twenty books for young people.  Her picture book, The Summer My Father Was Ten, won the Christopher Medal, an award given to books that “affirm the highest values of the human spirit.”  Her picture book Mama Loves Me from Away, about a young girl whose mother is in prison, inspired her to volunteer at the state prison for women in New Jersey.  Since 2003 she has coordinated Project Storybook that allows the women to choose books to record and mail home to their children.   Her most recent picture book, Sometimes We Were Brave, was selected as an honor book in the picture book category by the Society of School Librarians International.  She is the mother of four sons.  She and her husband live in Phillipsburg, NJ.

A Heart Apart – A Voice for Military Children

A Heart Apart, Christine Piper, Melissa Seligman, military children, children of deployed soldiers, a child's voice, HEr War Her Voice, Lifecaptured.comToo often, the focus is on the uniform. On the one serving. But what of the countless children who have served silently, over and over again, through sustained deployments? Where are their news stories and accounts of bravery? What about medals for their sacrifice? There are books available for military children, several of which are highly recommended, but none of them offer what they crave: to literally see themselves and their loved ones in the content.

Written by Melissa Seligman and Chris Piper, A Heart Apart is different in that it encourages children to create and share their own unique stories, upload their own photos then share it with their deployed parent overseas. A Heart Apart is also unique in that it offer helpful suggestions for children too young to fully express themselves. With paint-by-number exercises revolving around the “mascot” (SGT Sam E. Hears, the Messenger Star), and fill-in-the blank letters, military children are encouraged to interact with their deployed parent while expressing their emotions and anxieties.

Each deployment is different. And each military child is special. Taking the time to celebrate each child’s uniqueness is essential in helping military personnel’s children on the road to healing and recovery. Each picture uploaded is a window into their hearts, and if a picture is worth a thousand words, these children have volumes to tell.

A Heart Apart believes in the healing power and the honest communication that comes through the written word. Giving young, struggling military children the opportunity to share in that experience is the first step in giving them the platform and understanding they are so desperately craving. These children serve bravely and repeatedly. They deserve the opportunity to share their story, honor their struggle, and salute their victory. Every hero should be celebrated.
