9/11

During my childhood, 911 simply meant a call for immediate assistance from the police, fire department or ambulance. For my children, it’s a reminder of September 11, 2001, a day the world will never forget because we were all affected in our own way.

The students displayed the flag at halfstaff in observance of “Patriot Day” to remember and pray for all who perished, defended and continue to help keep us safe. Near and far, many of us can still remember what we were doing the morning the news struck our hearts and witnessed one of the most tragic events in American history.

My children are still young, but last year my husband and I explained the heroism and courage displayed on this fateful day. Most importantly the bravery parents tackled when they explained to their children their mom or dad was not coming home that night. We focused on the good that came from people’s hearts so we can continue to live a wonderful life. My husband and I understand our children will read about 9/11 in history books, as all significant American moments. I was pleased to know Nickelodeon designed a children’s special, “What Happened? The Story of September 11, 2001, anniversary.”
