Acknowledging 9/11 — 20 Year Anniversary

Later this week will be the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the twin towers in New York City, a significant and traumatic event for Americans and people around the world. Melody Fox Ahmed, the Director for Global Studies at the National Cathedral School invites educators to use the occasion for both remembrance and education. Even though our current students were not yet born on 9/11/2001, it is critical that they understand how the event has shaped our current society. She writes, "In difficult times, our ethical and faith commitments give us hope and courage. Our commitment to justice gives us the strength to work together for a better world. We can only overcome the global trauma of events like 9/11 working in community if we are bound by shared language and response that brings us together."
