Small World vs. Large World
- A True Story from my Book One Rescue the Stories
Prior to World War II, my world was pretty small.“Current Events,” at our grammar school
consisted ofour “Weekly Reader” that
gave us a peek into new inventions, the World’s Fair on Treasure Island, and
our beautiful Bay bridge - -that the powers that be had promised that they
would remove the toll charge as soon as the bridge was paid for.
When World War II happened, my world became a bit
larger.Each week at our school
