Third-graders And 95-Year-Old Veteran Shares Unlikely Beautiful Friendship

An unusual friendship has blossomed between third graders from central Iowa and a 95-year-old World War II Veteran.

Last fall, Mr. Nidey’s class at Crestview School of Inquiry had a surprise volunteer, a 95-year-old World War II veteran Elaine Hamilton.

The class became so close to Hamilton, that whenever he could not make it to school, they would daily Facetime him to keep in touch.

This is such an unusual friendship that has blossomed between the third-grade class and their favorite volunteer in Eric Hanson’s “This is Iowa.”

Verse of the Day

He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. — Isaiah 53:3-4 (NIV)
