How Do I Explain 9.11?
Thursday, September 12, 2019
As with most Americans, I paused and thought about what happened on 9-11-01. And I thought of my granddaughter and all the others who were born after that date or who were too young to remember. How do I explain to her something that I can't really put into words? How do I explain to a first-generation American what it's like to be a proud American? How do I teach her to be a good citizen, no matter in what community she lives in?
I am working on getting her to believe in herself, believe in God, believe in family. We both joined Girl Scouts. I am hoping this will connect her to others and to the world. I hope I can do a good job.
