Then and Now

American Children

The letters of Mother Theresa and Mother Caroline give their first impressions of American children. As you read them you may wonder if much has changed in more than 150 years since these were first written. As you read their thoughts, enjoy a moment of reliving their shock in meeting their first American students.
