1 - Guide to Talking To Your Children About 9/11 thanks to Tuesday’s Children
Do you remember where you were on 9/11/2001? I do! I was at work when my husband called and told me about the first plane. I told my associates and we all went looking on the internet. Then my husband called again, now the 2nd tower and more. I wanted to cry! I just wanted to go home and hold my daughter, Krystal, who was only 14 at the time. No one could believe what we were hearing and we knew the world, as we knew it, had changed that day. When I came home I was glued to the television to really see for myself that this had happened. I kept telling my daughter "this will be in history books for your kids". I just sat in front of that television for hours, crying and saying prayers for anyone in the planes, buildings, on the ground, and all the people helping. The images played over and over, on every channel, of people running for their lives covered in a thick layer of white dust. The dust took hours to settle to learn the total damage and that was just 2 of the planes that cause the 2 towers to collapse. That night I learned about an airplane full of heroes that spent their last minutes saving an untold number of people, by forcing through cabin doors and stopping another terrorist attack. This cost everyone of these passengers their lives. There was also the other plane that hit the Pentagon. By the end of the night 2 towers had collapsed, and they would be searching for days for anyone alive, then bodies. We lost 2,996 people that day, over 6,000 people were injured, and more than $10 billion dollars in damages to infrastructure. As Americans we were shaken to our core, walked around numb for days, donating and helping in any way we could. There were volunteers from everywhere in the US, lots of companies sent people. We had no idea what to expect next or how to even protect ourselves from it. It took a long time to feel better after this and I still have a sadness come over me when it is mention. After this day the United States has become stronger and smarter. There were so many heroes on that day and for long after. Now our children need to know about this and we are the only ones that can tell the history the way we remember it.
9/11 opens in theaters on September 8 and features an all-star cast including Charlie Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Luis Guzman (The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), Wood Harris (Justified), Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York), Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries) and Bruce Davison (X-Men).
In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.
Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later ... their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.
With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.
