Remembering 9/11

The bracelet reminds me of the POW bracelet I wore when I was a teenager and I regret ever taking off.

I found your site when researching information about the FDNY. I teach a week long unit about 9/11/01 with my history classes and was looking for information about the firefighters lost on that tragic day.

9/11/01 changed our country and is a historical event that occurred within the lifetime of my students. It allows me to begin my teaching year with a historical reference that my students can discuss with their families and helps me spark an interest in history. The events of 9/11/01 also illuminates the importance for citizens to understand the policies of our government and the relationships we have with other countries.

I am thankful to have a constant reminder of the heroics of our countries' firefighters and hope that my wearing this bracelet prompts many discussions about the events of 9/11/01.

Thank you.
