For eight years September 11th has come and gone and my husband and I have quietly remembered the tragic loss of so many lives without uttering a word to our two children. I always knew that one day the time would come to talk about the significance of 9/11 and today was that day.
Today, on the ninth anniversary, we did something as American as apple pie- we went to a baseball game to see the Washington Nationals play in our Nation’s Capitol.
As we approached the stadium, we were greeted by a giant flag suspended between two outstretched ladders from two fire trucks and just beyond, saw that the flags were flying at half mast while the LED scoreboards were proclaiming that today was Heroes Day at the ballpark.
I wrote about how we talked with our 4 and 6 year old about September 11th for the first time in this week’s post on The LeapFrog Community.
If you discussed the significance of September 11th in your house this weekend, I’d love for you read Lessons About September 11th and share the ages of your children and what you talked about, how you brought up the subject, and if you did anything in remembrance.
I am compensated to write a weekly column on The LeapFrog Community but am not required to share my posts on my personal site.
