  •  A child's perspective (7+ / 0-)

    My daughter is thirteen and she loves to draw.   I came home last night, and she showed me one of her pictures.     I saw the angels but didn't understand what was at the bottom of the page.

    It was the letters 9 - 11, decorated with flames.

    And, then she explained.  It was angels falling from the towers.

      Living as a child during and after 9/11 is and was difficult beyond measure. Something of this nature can't be comprehended or explained in a simple way.
