It was 16 years ago Monday that thousands of people were killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. With the time that has passed, a new generation of children have been born and raised in America after the attacks. Although they weren’t alive in 2001, many schools are remembering those lives lost in the 9-11 attacks.
Anita Brown is the principal at Stonington Elementary School. She says with the media coverage each year, kids wonder about what happened, so teachers try to answer any of their questions and alleviate their fears.
Brown says each teacher also has activities relating to 9-11 for the student’s grade level. She says her biggest goal is to make sure students feel safe.
