September 11th. A day we will all remember.
I definitely do. And it’s one our students and children should too. It’s a day that we honor and remember those we lost and those that will never fully heal. It’s a day that we honor and remember the heroes. It’s a day that we remember and are reminded that our brothers and sisters who were/are Muslim, those of Arab and South Asian descent who after 9/11, became targets of government practices that result in racial profiling and Islamophobia. No, we must not forget. We must remember, honor AND we must continuously do better.
Here are some books to help with that. Some are picture books for all ages. Some are chapter books. Here is a link to my collection of September 11th books on @epic as well.
