Taking Granpa To Macys grocery Store

Contributor: JamesAnderson Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

I remember when I was younger before high school age, I would got with my parents or my dad to grandpas house so that we could take him on his errands. For some reason I looked forward to going with them on these outings. I don't know if it was because I got to spend time with my dad or with my grandpa or both. I loved being with them. My grandpa always had the most random things on his list and it was very interesting to see the way my dad interacted with his dad. My grandpa would always call me "cute girl" its was something I was not used to because being raised in Haiti, we weren't used to seeing more then one generation of family around. Grocery shopping with him wasn't just a short trip, it took quit a bit of time because my grandpa knew everyone who had worked there and boy did they know him. He would be so friendly to all of them and always catch them up on the latest scout thing he was working on.

World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
