9-11 Commemoration
updated: Sep 11, 2011, 2:08 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

I love to sleep in on Sunday mornings. The kids are great about giving me a few extra hours and I appreciate it. This morning something was keeping them extra busy and quiet. They finally woke me up around 10am wanting to show me the creation they had been working on. Without any prompting they made a Lego scene depicting their understanding of 9-11 (They were born in 1999, 2001 and 2002). They are not master Lego builders by any stretch of the imagination but if you look closely you will notice the helicopter circling above, a plane crashing in to a towering inferno that is beginning to crumble to the ground and fire trucks and ambulance on the scene. What moved me most was their inclusion of so many hero's at the scene. That's how I like to remember 9-11.

Out of many In Memorium depictions I've seen today, this one is very special. Your kids have great hearts.

Well done. It's clear they worked hard on it and put a lot of thought into it. It's important that kids understand what happened that day. It seems that yours do. You must be proud.

These kids are very intuitive and creative. The leaning building is what had to happen with asymmetrical airplane damage. Kids are so much smarter than we adults.

You get to sleep until 10am!?!?! I'm jealous! :) Additionally, your kids seem to be aware and very creative beings. You should be proud (and grateful that you get to sleep until 10am!!!)

That's really amazing. A beautiful tribute and encouragement that this next generation will remember to honor those that were lost as well. Thanks for sharing!

As a retired art teacher for 7th graders, I am so impressed with how creative your children are! I also thought it was so very sweet of them to let you sleep until 10:00 am as they probably were so anxious to show you what they created.
