Try as we might to shield our children from harm and the horrors of the world, sometimes it is best to face it head-on. As we remember the events of Sept. 11th today, we will be inundated with images of the burning twin towers, the Pentagon in smoke, and a plane in a field. Turn off the TV, and lil ones are still likely to see the images when Mom turns on the computer or Dad opens the newspaper. Lil ones who weren't even glints in our eyes are now old enough to ask what it's all about. A number of books have been written about the events, but these six are geared to young tots to help introduce it in an age-appropriate manner.
Today marks the seven-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks on our country. And even if you didn't lose a loved one or weren't directly impacted by the events of this day, I'm sure September 11th still stirs up some emotion for you. So on this day of remembrance, tell me, how do the historical events of September 11th make you feel?
This video falls under the funny/sad category. A guy walks around the streets of New York and asks people basic questions about what has come to be known as "the events of September 11th." And yet, some folks think it happened in August, 2004 by Hindu extremists and that millions died. Oh, brother.
