Remembering September 11 With The Kids

It’s hard to believe the Anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terror attack is upon us.

This event changed our Nation and our World in many ways.

It gave new meaning to the term 9-11.

Please take a moment to remember the 2996 innocent people who lost their lives: parents, husbands, wives, children, grandchildren & loved ones.

Reflect and  teach your kids about 9/11.

Though, it was a day of mourning and loss for our country, there are many lessons of courage, unity, love, and strength that came from this historic day as well.

My kids were born after 9/11. I’ve been looking for information on how to explain it to kids. Here are a few resources I came across:

National Geographic: Info associated with the Natural Geographic Channel’s “Remembering 9/11″ series.  In addition to an episode guide, the website has photos and video clips.

YouTube: Launched by Google and the New York Times, this is the official “9/11″ YouTube channel.  It contains archived broadcasts from September 2001 as well as unique content from the New York Times. In addition, people are invited to submit personal stories that are available for viewing and sharing.
