Strangely, there is a link between my last post on “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and this post about 9/11. George Bush was apparently reading this book to a room full of children when he was quietly advised that “A second plane has his the second tower. America is under attack.”
My daughter and I will be in New York this weekend. I am going to take her to visit Ground Zero and we will join the national act of rememberance. She is going to be doing an article about it for First News, the children’s newspaper.
We have been watching all the programmes on 9/11 this week. She has been taking notes. She was only 5 when it happened but remembers very clearly the details of the event.
More than 3,000 children lost a parent on 9/11.
