After school yesterday, the boys and I took a short drive to 50 E Civic Center Drive to visit the 9/11 Memorial.
Max and Brady were able to put their hands on the beam. The twisted metal made Patriot Day a little more real to them.
The Memorial includes panels with the names of people, ordinary and brave who had lives to live and things to do.
I don’t like to tell my children about 9/11. But I told them all the same.
I also told them what Fred Rogers said on Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
The world is full of good people, just like you and me.
