Here in the United States today is Patriot Day. Both of my kids were born after September 11, 2001 but we have talked about that day and think about ways we can remember and honor those families who lost loved ones, our brave first responders, and those who protect and give for us on a daily basis.
My oldest asked for me to get him this book. He loves history and it is so important for them to realize that their lives now is someone else's history. Even if you aren't American this is a great history series for kids!
Last year we visited a flag memorial in a city near us. I'm still not sure what I'll do tonight with the boys but we'll do something. Will you be doing anything in rememberence today?
