The Social Poets: 9-11 Stories Roundup: How Is America 10 Years Later?:
From Denny: Every year when this date comes we all pause and remember those whose lives were taken quickly and horribly. We mourn for those left behind and pray for them to find their way in life.
For the youngest generation this event is a moment seared upon their memory, remembering where they were when America was struck by terrorism and the Twin Towers fell. Included here is an article of how to talk to children about the attack.
Not all associated with this terrible event is sadness, despair and sorrow. Whether survivors, or families and friends of the fallen, many have discovered the well of strength within themselves. Others have started charities and foundations to honor not the dead but the lives of the victims, promoting their life philosophies and initiatives. Stories of wonderful inspiring people have been shared in the news and memorials for the world to remember.
