September 12: The Day We Knew Everything Would Be Alright

 Being from New Jersey, and having been in college 25 miles away from New York City at the time of the September 11th attacks, this day had a big impact on my life. Each year we try to remember those who were lost, but at those events become farther and farther from the present, we realize that our students weren't even born then... most of my students were born in 2004! So we just read the following book and keep the conversation light.

Scholastic has a new book that I may consider buying and reading next year. Their other books were tastefully written, and I hope that this one is just the same.

What do you do in your classroom to commemorate the event?
