    Definitely a great video. I had a good friend (passed away a few years ago in a car accident:frown:) who worked in Lower Manhattan and went through the WTC PATH station about 15 minutes before the first plane hit. She went home to NJ on one of the volunteer boats, and always spoke of how she was so grateful.

    I also remember oldest son's (now a 2013 B-split) reaction to the attack and how proud I was of him. He was all of 10 years old at the time and in fifth grade. Because he was in an advanced math class, he wasn't with the other fifth graders when the attack occurred, and another teacher came running into the advanced classroom in hysterics. He was late returning to his regular class and the teacher asked him why he was late. Rather than announce to the class what had happened, he asked the teacher for a "private" moment and told him what he had heard. The teacher was thankful he handled it this way - it made his job a lot easier.

    Thank you sooooo much

    These two videos were used by me today to teach a 9-11 class to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who were not born, 1, 2, 3, or 4 years old at the time. This was especially important since these students parents are in Iraq and Afganistan at this moment. I teach Middle School on a Military Base.

    Obviously, they do not remember the events but to see the other materials that were age appropriate made sense in my presentation. You could see their faces are they understood why their parents are deployed for the 4th or 5th time.

    My DD graduated in June from USMMA and is commissioned as a US Navy Ensign. I talk of her often so that the students can identify with other military persons as I build relationships of support.

    THANK YOU, again. as we REMEMBER our HERO'S this weekend.
