There have been several memorial specials, ceremonies, and speeches about he 10 year anniversary of 9/11. I had a very tender moment with THREE. THREE is 8 and was not around when 9/11 occurred and hasn't heard very much about the events of that day.
But we had a chance to talk- TWO, THREE and I, yesterday before church. We talked about who Al-Qaeda is, who bin Laden was, and how the day is a solemn day to remember the many people who lost their lives. We talked about Flight 93. I was so very proud to tell my children of the great heroes on that flight who took it upon themselves to do something great in a dire situation. How they knew there was no way to avoid their own deaths and decided to be selfless and save the lives of so many others.
