My daughter had to ask an adult some questions about 9/11 as part of her social studies homework. There were some nuts and bolts about the where and when. Then came a question that asked who the heroes were that day. I was already concerned that I might not have given the answers that her teacher was looking for, but decided to keep winging it. I answered that the firefighters and police were, but that anyone who lent a hand and tried to help was also a hero.
Here is my 9/11 post from 2010.
I guess with the election this year and all that we will go back to business as usual as a country divided tomorrow...rats.
