I was less than 2 months pregnant and teaching 2nd grade. Honestly, the thought of explaining this to my child has never crossed my mind until my 7 year old started asking questions. I just never imagined having to explain it to anyone because EVERYONE knows about that day.
I was unprepaired to answer questions like "What was the point?" and "Why do I keep hearing about Afganistan today?" and "What is a terrorist?" I think my baby lost some of her inocense today.
I am curious as to where you were in your life on that day? It's one of those moments that brings everyone together.
