Sept. 11: The next generation

Schools focus on remembrance, resilience, hope at 10th anniversary


"This is an opportunity, for the older grades, to learn and understand that the attacks on Sept. 11 weren't representative of a culture or religion," Trevarrow said. "That it's important we respect all people."

McGrath, and many other educators, recommend that parents limit the amount of television and media coverage their children consume about Sept. 11. Images that can be graphic or moving to adults will be even more so for children.

"Children get information, and if they need or want more, they ask questions. That's why it's really important to listen to what children are asking and be very careful how you answer them," McGrath said. "... The Sept. 11 anniversary is really an opportunity for learning and to comfort our children."
