Megan’s family has an important and historic heirloom in their family.
Megan brought into school a very precious letter that was written to her Great-Great- Grandmother in November 1953 by none other than Winston Churchill.
Megan’s Grandmother shared her birthday with the former Prime Minster, which is commemorated by the letter.
Churchill was voted the Greatest Briton of all time in 2000 for his wisdom, wit and leadership. We remember him by his words, such as “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue counts.”
For Megan and her family, they have something more personal and priceless to connect them to the great man himself.
