FIRST-PERSON STORIES FROM KIDS WHO LOST PARENTS IN THE 9/11 DISASTER 10 YEARS AGO

*http://kidsafe.com/2099/the-children-of-911/

Last year I associated with the Children's Educational Network and its KIDSAFE program because I believed in its focus -- a safe computer environment through which children can learn and grow.  Since that time CEN founder Greg Writer has introduced a number of other commendable initiatives, the latest being "The Children of 9/11" feature to which I provide the above *link.  On this the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 disaster in New York, we have heard heart-tugging stories about some of the 3,000 individuals (several dozen Canadians) who lost their lives in the tragedy.  For the first time, however, we bring you previously untold stories in the words of some of the children who lost parents and whose lives have been permanently altered.

You will have to set aside a few minutes to read their stories, but it will be well worth your time.  Go to the above link.   NOTE:  Just ignore any pop-ups that may occur when you first access the site.
