Helping Children Remember 9/11

I’m wrapping up some work this weekend, and preparing to travel (naturally) tomorrow to Maxwell AFB, but this table, published here, seemed like a worthy post to commemorate the date. There are multiple resources on how to help children remember 9/11 that may be worth checking out:
