Today, every year since 2001, has been a solemn one. For most of us, we have blips of remembering 9/11 only on this day. We know we’re patriotic every day, especially on the 4th of July, Labor Day, Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day….but there’s an entire world of us that live with the painful memory of that day each and every day. My co-worker and I were talking about the kids born after that day who will never fully get the amount of grief, anger, patriotism felt that day. I know they’ll learn about it in school, but even when I was in school – I never fully understood the gravity of many of events what I was reading.
So, be sure to share with the little ones what happened on this day – maybe not all the images if they’re still young. But it’s important to tell everyone about this so that way it will always be remembered – all the lives that day and also those to date for the folks continuing the fight for our freedom.
