This day, every year – without fail – millions of us stop and remember. We remember where we were at that very moment. We remember the feeling of our hearts dropping to our stomachs. Silence, cries, tears — that is what I remember of the moment 9/11 happened. It is often difficult to talk to our children about these horrific events in history. These ideas and activities can help us talk with our children about 9/11.
I could never find a video well enough to show my kids about the day that impacted our country so much. I showed them a short video once, but I think it is time to share with them what happened.
I am grateful for this resource that gives everything we need to walk our children through the happenings, yet teaches them about so many men and women who helped on that very day. The heroes are worth remembering.
I was in the military then, living in Spain. The day was about to come to a close when it all happened. We were watching the large screen T.V. (all of us) in the Naval Hospital in pure silence and horrified.
This day will forever be remembered by those who love our country, by those who remember the fallen and the families left behind. May God be with them all this very difficult day for them all. Let us honor those who gave up their lives, for the heroes. Always remember.
This resource your family needs to discuss this day and to appreciate the community helpers around that help us selflessly day after day in our own neighborhoods and serving our country. The links to kid-friendly videos are exactly what I was looking for to show my kids.
