Tulia means “calm down” in Swahili. Aisha’s mom often used the Swahili word “tulia” to help calm her children down.  Now Aisha has her own reason to use the word "tulia."  While visiting her sister who is babysitting, Aisha smells smoke. In this scary moment, a very brave girl, armed with her mother’s voice, finds courage…
